Jonathan Warner 

Jonathan Nicholas Warner trained at the Mayo Clinic Arizona.  Under the mentorship of Dr. Mitchell Humphreys he learned the holmium laser enucleation of the prostate.  He then went to Detroit for his Reconstructive Urology Training with Dr. Richard Santucci.  Working at several different hospitals, some with limited resources, he found it difficult to acquire the necessary resources to perform HoLEP and sought alternative therapies with equal outcomes.  He was introduced to the Bipolar enucleation technique during a live surgery course performed by Dr. Jorge Rassler in Germany, as well as Thomas Hermann in Switzerland.  He never looked back.  Since that time he has performed over 500 procedures across the globe and runs a monthly enucleation course in Southern California.  In addition to BPH surgery he performs a wide array of robotic, endoscopic and open reconstructive urology procedures.  He is currently employed at City of Hope in Duarte, California, but will be heading to Mayo Clinic Rochester this fall.
