Professional Statement
Dr. Jeffrey C. La Rochelle received his undergraduate degree from Indiana University and attended medical school at Rush Medical College in his hometown of Chicago. His surgical internship and residency in urology were completed at Rush University Medical Center. He then completed a fellowship in urologic oncology at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he received extensive training in the surgical treatment of genitourinary cancers. Dr. La Rochelle then joined the faculty of Oregon Health & Science University where he performed a large number of complex surgeries in the treatment of kidney, bladder, prostate and testicular cancer. He also developed extensive experience in robotic surgery of these same cancers. He has authored or co-authored many articles and textbook chapters. Dr. La Rochelle takes a greal deal of pride in tackling complex cases and aggressively treating urologic problems, but he does not lose sight of the fact that the ultimate goal is an excellent quality of life with good piece of mind. "I don't subscribe to the notion that being cancer-free is the only goal worth considering," he says. "Being cancer-free and having excellent functionality is the true goal." Dr. La Rochelle takes the same conscientious approach he uses with complex cases to address more routine urologic conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia and kidney stones, which can also have substantial effects on quality of life. Furthermore, Dr. La Rochelle has significant experience with bladder and upper urinary tract (kidney and ureter) reconstruction that is sometimes required after trauma or treatment of other abdominal or pelvic malignancies. Whenever he is able, Dr. La Rochelle enjoys spending time with his family and exploring the wonderful state of Oregon.
