Specialty / Expertise
Dr. Voelzke has a clinical interest in reconstructive urology. Reconstructive urology includes the surgical management of issues related to the kidney, ureter, bladder and genitals (urethra, penis, scrotum). The surgical management of urethral stricture disease, adult hypospadias, male stress urinary incontinence, rectourethral fistula, and acute complications related to genitourinary trauma are particular areas of his expertise.
Following successful management of pelvic cancers, additional reconstructive surgery may be necessary to rehabilitate the lower urinary tract. Such additional surgery can be vital to improve the patient’s perceived quality of life. While these cases can be challenging, Dr. Voelzke and his staff are interested in the role of surgical reconstruction to manage surgical- and/or radiation-related issues.
Dr. Voelzke is a member of the Trauma and Urologic Reconstructive Network of Surgeons (TURNS). To learn more about the work of TURNS, follow this link: http://www.turnsresearch.org/
Education & Training
Bryan Voelzke received his undergraduate Bachelor’s degree from Baylor University and his MD degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. After finishing his general surgery internship and urology residency at Loyola University Medical Center, Dr. Voelzke completed a fellowship in genitourinary trauma and urologic reconstruction at the University of California - San Francisco Medical Center. Since joining the urology department, he has completed a MS in Public Health/Epidemiology to further enable his clinical research.
