Dr. James Hendricks Biography

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.
 
Since he has been serving the community as a private practice urologist, Dr. Hendricks has been treating not only patients requiring treatment of urological cancers, but he also treats all benign conditions in men and women. He has been performing laser prostatectomy, specifically greenlight laser prostatectomy, since 2006 and is the first urologist on the west coast to perform the procedure under local anesthesia in the office. He has run workshops in office laser prostatectomy since 2008, training other urologists. He also has a large experience in and proctored other physicians in pelvic floor repair and surgery for female stress incontinence.

Dr. Hendricks is ready and willing to see patients with any urological issue. He treats all patients with compassion and respect, and will always try to take the time to address any concerns.

In his free time, Dr. Hendricks enjoys playing tennis, cycling, sailing, skiing and snowboarding, and just about anything with his family.
