Dr. Hendricks grew up in the central valley and attended Occidental College, where he graduated Cum Laude with a degree in biology. He then attended Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City for medical school, where he was introduced to the field of Urology and became fascinated by it. He then did his 6 year general surgery and urology residency at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, which is a very busy and active program with extensive experience in every field of urology.
Once he completed his residency, he was a urologist for the US Navy, spending two years at the US Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan, followed by two years at Naval Medical Center, San Diego. Since 2002 he has been in private practice.
Dr. Hendricks has extensive experience in all facets of urology, both female and male. He has been performing laparoscopic surgery since 2000, and robotic urology since 2003. He has served as a surgical proctor for robotic radical prostatectomy, teaching other urologists how to do the procedure and observing them. He also has proctored and run surgical workshops for prostate and kidney cryoablation of cancer, whereby urologists from all over the world have watched him do cases. He has treated a large volume of patients with kidney cancer with laparoscopic cryoablation and microwave ablation of kidney tumors, with a greater than 95 percent success at completely eradicating the tumors.
