Ryan J. Powers, D.O. was born and raised in Seattle, WA. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Western Washington University with a major in Biology. He went on to pursue a Master of Public Health degree from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
Dr. Powers attended medical school at Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ. He completed his residency in urology at Cook County Health in Chicago, IL, where he served as chief resident during his final year. After residency, he completed a fellowship in advanced minimally invasive robotic surgery at the top-rated University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Powers is a member of the American Urological Association.
Dr. Powers has received training in complex robotic surgeries for malignant and benign urologic disorders under the tutelage of world-renowned experts at USC. He is very comfortable performing open surgery for these disorders as well given his background at Cook County Health. He treats cancers of the urinary tract that include kidney, bladder, prostate, testicular and penile cancers as well as benign conditions such as kidney stones, strictures, BPH or enlarged prostates, overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, urologic trauma, erectile dysfunction, and infertility. Dr. Powers is interested in providing access to new technologies and using minimally invasive techniques in urologic surgery to improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. In addition to his work in the office and the operating room, Dr. Powers has published works in medical journals and presented research at national and local urology conferences. He believes that urologic care is best undertaken as a partnership between patients and himself, thus taking the time to educate his patients in their care.
In his time outside of urologic practice, Dr. Powers spends time with his family that includes his wife, daughter and dog. He is an avid outdoorsman and loves that Phoenix affords the ability to be outdoors all year.
