Jared Heiner, M.D. studied music at Brigham Young University and graduated magna cum laude in 1997. He received his M.D. from UC San Diego in 2001 and then completed his urology residency at the Medical College of Georgia. Since 2006 he has practiced urology in the Treasure Valley and has a special interest in the treatment of prostate cancer and benign conditions of the prostate.
Dr. Heiner stays abreast of current treatments by reading journal articles and evaluating and sometimes adopting novel therapies. He was the first in the Treasure Valley to perform and incorporate Rezum prostate therapy and the first in Idaho to perform the SpaceOAR procedure for prostate cancer patients undergoing radiation. He is the only local urologist currently certified to perform prostate cryotherapy and he performs Da Vinci robotic prostatectomies for prostate cancer.
He believes in volunteerism and has volunteered in Mexico and also in Ethiopia where he repaired vesicovaginal fistulae and taught local surgeons how to perform the TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) operation.
When he comes home from work he is greeted by four wonderful children, a black lab mix adopted from the Humane Society, and his wonderful wife and companion of more than 20 years! He wishes he had more free time for playing soccer with his children, camping, running, flying airplanes, and seeking out other adventures.
