Dr. Voelzke finished his bachelor’s degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center-San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas. He completed his urology residency at Loyola University Medical Center in Hines, Illinois, before finishing a one-year advanced clinical urology fellowship in Melbourne, Australia.

Dr. Voelzke completed a fellowship in genitourinary reconstruction and trauma at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center with Dr. Jack McAninch before joining the Department of Urology at the University of Washington in 2008. He also achieved a master’s degree in clinical epidemiology in 2013.

Since 2008, Dr. Voelzke has lived in the Pacific Northwest. His prior academic practice was devoted to reconstructive urology at the University of Washington/Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington.

Dr. Voelzke connects with a broad network of physicians across the Pacific Northwest to provide surgical and medical care for men and women with complex urologic reconstructive issues. He routinely treats patients with issues such as urethral stricture disease, stress urinary incontinence, Peyronie’s disease, and genital reconstruction following skin malignancies.

Dr. Voelzke has a special interest in the reconstruction of the bladder and ureter following radiation for pelvic malignancy and other injuries. Dr. Voelzke has previously performed over 110 reconstructive cases yearly and was the only reconstructive urologist in the Seattle area performing certain advanced urologic surgical procedures.

Patient-centered care is a priority for Dr. Voelzke, and he’s received numerous awards. On separate occasions, he received the Patient-Reported Assessment in Satisfaction and Excellence (PRAISE) Award solely based on patient feedback. In 2018, he was also recognized as a top doctor in urology in the Seattle Met magazine, and he was awarded the Colonel John N. Wettlaufer Resident Educator of the Year Award by the Madigan Army Medical Center urology residents. He was one of 16 health providers to be nominated for the UW Distinguished Teaching Award.

Dr. Voelzke is a proud founder of the Trauma and Urologic Reconstructive Network of Surgeons (TURNS) — a group of reconstructive urologists across multiple academic centers that collaborate in the study of urologic reconstruction. It’s the first and only clinical research network of its kind in the field of genitourinary and reconstructive trauma.

Dr. Voelzke treats each patient as an individual, and as he would want to be treated. He knows that his patients live with the outcome of a surgical procedure for the rest of their lives, and he strives to perform the best possible, advanced, effective, and life-changing surgeries.

In his free time, Dr. Voelzke enjoys spending valuable time with his wife and their wonderful children. Dr. Voelzke and his family are excited to explore Spokane and the Inland Northwest.
