Dr. Loren Jones

Dr. Loren Jones was raised in southern Illinois and received his bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. He then attended the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, earning his Doctor of Medicine. He completed his six-year urology residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is board certified in urology.

Dr. Jones has an interest in minimally-invasive surgery, treating a wide variety of urologic conditions with different techniques, including laparoscopy, robotic surgery, laser surgery for enlarged prostate, and minimally-invasive kidney stone extraction. During his residency, he learned state-of-the-art microsurgical techniques for vasectomy reversal and sperm retrieval for use in assisted reproductive techniques (IVF, ICSI). He treats all general urologic conditions including bladder, kidney, testicular and prostate cancers, urinary incontinence, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, and low testosterone.

Dr. Jones has published a book chapter on the treatment of male infertility. He has also been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at regional, national, and international meetings on many urologic topics.

Dr. Jones lives in Austin with his wife, Karee, and their two young children.
