Dr Jean Joseph currently serves as W.W. Scott Professor and Chairman of the department of Urology, Professor of Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Dr Joseph completed his college education at Boston University. He later attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine, where he also completed his residency in 1998. He received fellowship training at the University College London in reconstructive urologic surgery. He completed a master class in laparoscopic prostatectomy at the Institute Mutualiste Montsouris (Paris, France). Dr Joseph completed a Master’s in Business Administration in 2004 at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Dr. Joseph's specializes in robotic surgery for urologic diseases, particularly prostate cancer. His research interests have focused on surgical innovation, applications of novel robotic technology, simulation, and patient outcomes. He is a pioneer in the field of robotic surgery, and has served as President of the Society of Urologic Robotic Surgery. He has participated as surgeon for several international live robotic surgery demonstrations, including the first live robotic prostatectomy transmission to the American Urological Association (AUA) in 2010. He has authored numerous medical journal articles on topics related to robotic and minimally invasive surgery.

Dr Joseph has served in a number of leadership positions. He served on the Board of the University of Rochester Medical Center. He is currently an executive board member of the Society of Academic Urologists. He also serves on the Board of the Endourology Society, the Northeastern Section of the American Urological Association as Secretary, and the American Board of Urology as a certifying examiner. He is a graduate of the AUA leadership program, and has served on the AUA content review committee.

Dr Joseph has edited multiple books, authored numerous book chapters, and scientific publications. He has served as course director for a number of courses at the American Urological Association, and World Congress of Endourology annual meetings.

Dr. Joseph was very professional and thorough, and took time to listen and understand my concerns, and to recommend a course of tests and process to determine what might be at the root of my problem. I am certain he is taking every precaution to find out what has caused the issue, and will be able to direct me to correct treatment should we find anything out of order.

Past experiences with Dr Joseph have been incredible. He has always answered my questions thoroughly. This time, however, he seemed hurried. Questions definitely were not answered to my satisfaction. Instead of explanations I received , "I'm not worried about that" and "That's nothing ". Easy for him to say, he's not the recovering cancer patient. If something has changed from a solid mass to a 2 cm fluid filled sac tell me WHY. If there is a cyst tell me WHAT TYPE and HOW BIG it is. How does that compare to last year's scan ? Is It growing ? Is It growing quickly or slowly ?

I already have recommended Dr. Joseph to my friend and neighbor, who also was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Subsequently he met with Dr Joseph and Dr Joseph performed surgery to remove his prostate. I researched Dr Joseph's surgical skills and his team's successes before making my appointment with him. I was confident Dr Joseph would address my medical issues and I am very satisfied with everything he has done for me. My friend has relayed the same confidence in Dr Joseph as well.
