Dr. Kirsten Janosek-Albright received her undergraduate degree with honors from Knox College in Illinois and her medical degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Upon graduation, she began a residency in Urology with the Vattikuti Urology Institute of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
Dr. Janosek-Albright completed her residency at the Vattikuti Institute while receiving surgical training from Dr. Mani Menon, who developed the robotic prostatectomy as we know it. Arizona Urology is excited to welcome Dr. Janosek-Albright to our team and to benefit from her training and expertise in urological surgeries and procedures. She brings a wide range of specialties to our practice, including robotics, prostate surgeries (TUIP and TURP), nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy, incontinence and neurogenic bladder surgeries, stone management and surgery and oncology (kidney, prostate, and testicular).
In addition to her advanced surgical training, Dr. Janosek-Albright has been an active volunteer throughout her education and career. She has spent time in different areas of the world, aiding institutions such as community clinics and international hospitals. In particular, Dr. Janosek-Albright studied traditional healers in Malawi; as well as worked with doctors of Western medicine there, and this gives her a unique perspective on healing and healthcare.
