Dr. Hunter Fuentes
Dr. Fuentes grew up in Texas, and after September 11th he joined the United States Navy where he served six years aboard a nuclear submarine with two deployments overseas. Afterward he went back to school to finish his Bachelor’s of Science in Microbiology at the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with High Honors. He then completed his Medical Degree at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas where he earned membership in Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism honor societies. Dr. Fuentes completed internship and residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston where he learned from leaders in Urologic Oncology, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Reconstruction, Stones, and Men’s Health. He was extensively trained in advanced endoscopy, single site laparoscopy, and robotics and tries to utilize these approaches whenever possible to ease recovery from surgery. Dr. Fuentes finds it important to not only treat his patients but educate them on their disease process so that they can learn ways to prevent future urologic illnesses such as recurring kidney stones. Outside of medicine, Dr. Fuentes enjoys spending time with his wife and two children doing everything the great outdoors has to offer including: hiking, skiing, biking, rafting, and camping. He cheers on college and professional sports teams, and he appreciates culture and cuisine. Dr. Fuentes is passionate about his patients and looks forward to taking care of you.

All surgical treatments have inherent and associated side effects. Individual’s outcomes may depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to patient characteristics, disease characteristics and/or surgeon experience. The most common side effects are mild and transient and may include mild pain or difficulty when urinating, discomfort in the pelvis, blood in the urine, inability to empty the bladder or a frequent and/or urgent need to urinate, and bladder or urinary tract infection. Other risks include ejaculatory dysfunction and a low risk of injury to the urethra or rectum where the devices gain access to the body for treatment. Further, there may be other risks as in other urological surgery, such as anesthesia risk or the risk of infection, including the potential transmission of blood borne pathogens.
