About

Bio

Dr. Roscoe S. “Rocky” Nelson is a nationally recognized, Board Certified Urologist. His practice encompasses all urologic conditions with a strong focus on prostate cancer, incontinence, kidney stones and male sexual health. He has a special interest in virtually painless anesthesia for vasectomies using the No-Scalpel and No-Needle techniques. His goal is to provide personalized, state-of-the-art care for all patients. "I grew up in Escondido, CA, and received my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University where I graduated as the valedictorian of my class. I completed my doctorate of medicine at the University of California, San Diego, followed by training in general surgery and urologic residency at the University of California, Davis. I am Board certified by the American Board of Urology (ABU) and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. I began practicing urology in Arizona in 1999 and am a partner in Arizona Center for Urology."

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
