Dr. Jeremy Montez
Long before Jeremy Montez, M.D., became a doctor, he was taking care of patients. A native of the Bay Area, Dr. Montez worked as a hospital orderly and scrub technician while studying biology at University of California Santa Barbara. After college, he trained as a physician's assistant and found himself treating patients at a Level I trauma center. “Each experience left me with the gratification of being able to help patients with their medical care,” he says, “but also motivated to continue my training to better serve them.” He went on to earn his medical degree at Keck School of Medicine of USC, and also completed his internship and residency at USC, receiving multiple honors along the way. As a surgeon/urologist, Dr. Montez is committed to taking care of all his patients' needs. He's especially excited to be working at City of Hope. “City of Hope not only has world-class physicians and facilities, but at their core, a dedicated group of individuals working as a team to make the lives of their patients better,” he says. “It’s an organization I am thrilled to be a part of.”

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.
