Urologist joins Providence and Saint John medical staffs

Steve Waxman, M.D., a board-certified urologist, is joining the medical staffs at Providence Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan., and Saint John Hospital, Leavenworth, Kan. Dr. Waxman will practice with Roy Oyer, D.O., another board-certified urologist, in Providence Medical Group Urology. Their offices are located on the Providence campus at 8919 Parallel Parkway, Suite 550, Kansas City, Kan; and on the Saint John campus in the Saint John Medical Plaza, 3550 S. Fourth Street, Suite 282, Leavenworth, Kan. An appointment with Dr. Waxman can be scheduled at 913-281-8406. Dr. Waxman has more than 20 years of experience caring for adult and pediatric urology problems. He offers female urology and incontinence treatment, infertility, impotence, prostate, bladder and kidney surgeries. He completed a fellowship in laparoscopic and robotic surgery at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, and will be using the recently-acquired da Vinci Surgical System at Providence to perform many urological operations on the kidneys and prostate. The da Vinci gives patients the opportunity for the best possible surgical outcomes, while staying closer to home for their care. Another hallmark of the da Vinci is that doctors can make smaller incisions than are used in traditional open surgeries. Other advantages include shorter hospital stays, less blood loss, fewer complications, less need for narcotic pain medicine, and a faster recovery. “I am really looking forward to offering my patients state-of-the-art surgical care using the da Vinci at Providence,” Dr. Waxman says. “There’s no need to leave the community for expert urological care.” Dr. Waxman earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas, Kansas City, Kan., where he also performed a residency in urology. He completed a fellowship in urodynamics in female and reconstructive surgery at Duke University Hospital, Durham, N.C.; and a fellowship in pediatric urology and urologic oncology at the University of Colorado and Denver Children’s Hospital, Denver, Colo. He served in the United States Army as an active duty physician, and now holds the rank of colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves. Dr. Waxman is vice president of the Kansas City Southwest Clinical Society, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine. He is a member of the American Urological Association (AUA) and is current chair of the AUA’s Judicial and Ethics Committee. He is also a Juris Doctorate, admitted to the bar in Indiana, and is a member of the American Bar Association. A native of Kansas City, he now resides in Overland Park with his wife with four school-age children. In addition to participating in his children’s activities, he enjoys running and skiing.
