      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hoeksema's Care Philosophy

      Patients can be reassured these days that we're interested not only in solving their problem - curing their disease, fixing and eliminating their cancer - but we're also interested in maintaining their quality of life and getting them back to where they were before they got sick. Urology's sort of been at the forefront of the evolution of minimally invasive surgery. We can now do operations that when I was in training - and for the first ten years of my practice - we didn't even envision they would be available to us. In the past, we used to have to make big incisions to go in and take out small stones. Now we can go in with telescopes and take out big stones without even an incision. And we can remove prostates with a laparoscope and a robot. We can take out large kidney tumors without making an incision, so remarkable advances. In fact, I would say half of what I'm doing now I had to learn while I was in practice.
