Dr. Craig Rogers specializes in minimally invasive surgery (robotic and laparoscopic) for kidney cancer, prostate cancer, and adrenal cancer. He has trained at some of the top medical centers in the country, including Stanford University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and the National Cancer Institute.
He may be the only surgeon in Michigan who has performed a fellowship in robotic kidney surgery and advanced laparoscopic kidney and adrenal surgery.

He currently practices at Henry Ford Hospital where he is the Director of Robotic Renal Surgery and Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital where he is the Director of Urologic Oncology.

Dr. Craig Rogers was raised in Iowa and attended Brigham Young University, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with honors in Biochemistry. He attended Stanford University School of Medicine and received his M.D. degree. He continued his surgical training in urology at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. After residency, Dr. Rogers continued specialty fellowship training in prostate and kidney cancer surgery at the National Cancer Institute, where he helped to develop their robotic kidney surgery program.

Throughout his training, he has performed kidney and prostate cancer surgery utilizing minimally invasive techniques, and has learned with the pioneers of these techniques.

Dr. Rogers specializes in robotic and laparoscopic kidney removal (radical nephrectomy), and partial nephrectomy. He also offers cryoablation for small kidney tumors. Whenever possible, robotic assistance is used to remove the tumor or cancer without removal of the entire kidney, which may help preserve kidney function.

In addition to advanced robotic and laparoscopic techniques, Dr. Rogers also routinely performs open surgery of the kidney for tumors that are not amenable to a laparoscopic approach.

Dr. Rogers has published extensively on the subjects of minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, prostate cancer, kidney cancer and bladder cancer. His research focus is on improving robotic surgical techniques for kidney cancer and the identification and utilization of biomarkers and genes for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of kidney and prostate cancer.
