Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sauerwein "As an experienced Urologist, I believe in providing compassionate, state-of-the-art Urology care which is tailored to the patient?s individual needs. This includes using the least invasive methods available, including the daVinci robotic system for Urologic surgery, which I introduced to Southeast Idaho in 2010. I also believe not all patients are the same. I believe it is important to always listen to my patient, educate about options, and finally, as a partner arrive at the best treatment."
