Bryan Voelzke, M.D., M.S., F.A.C.S., is a board certified urologist at Spokane Urology. Dr. Voelzke prior academic practice was solely devoted to reconstructive urology at the University of Washington/Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. While there, he cultivated a broad network of physician referrals across the Pacific Northwest to provide surgical and medical care for patients with complex urologic reconstructive issues. Providing patient-centered care is important to Dr. Voelzke. He has received a number of awards from patients in recognition of his attention to patient care.
I am a board-certified gynecologic oncologist who specializes in surgery for women with ovarian, endometrial, cervical, vulvar, or vaginal cancer.
I have a strong interest in providing minimally invasive surgical options for our patients, including both laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures. In 2006, I became one of the first gynecologic oncologists to use the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform robotically-assisted procedures in women with benign and malignant gynecologic conditions. Minimally invasive procedures result in less blood loss than do traditional surgeries, allowing for shorter hospital stays and faster recuperation time for patients. I serve as the Director for the Minimal Access and Robotic Surgery Program in the Department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering and have helped to build one of the best and most experienced robotic surgery programs in the world across multiple surgical specialties.
I also perform radical procedures via traditional laparotomy in cases when these more-traditional surgeries may provide better results and longer survival. These include debulking for ovarian cancer and radical procedures for other gynecologic cancers.
Dr. Edward Tanner is an assistant professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics and at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Montz Fellowship Program in Gynecologic Oncology.
Additionally, Dr. Tanner is co-leader of the GYN/Urology Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program and the Robotic Surgery Steering Committee. In these roles, he oversees a multidisciplinary program in surgical quality and patient safety at the hospital. Dr. Tanner is recognized for his outstanding surgical skills, compassionate bedside manner and teaching abilities.
Dr. Tanner’s clinical interests include the surgical management of advanced gynecologic cancers, including radical debulking surgery for ovarian cancer, as well as minimally invasive surgery for early-stage female cancers.
My practice is dedicated to the comprehensive care and treatment of women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers, pre-cancerous conditions and complex problems that require the specialized training and experience of a gynecologic oncologist.
It is the mission of our doctors, nurses and other support personnel to provide the best treatments available to all of our patients, while at the same time recognizing that each patient is a partner in their own treatment. We therefore strive to provide the highest level of care in an atmosphere that promotes the open exchange of information between the patient and the caregiver.
Even though the nature of medical care delivery changes daily, we will always work hard to maintain the high standard of patient care that has been a distinguishing feature of our practice since its beginning in 1998.
In practice since: 1992
