Dr. Jun Kawakami, MD, FRCSC

Dr. Jun Kawakami graduated from Queen’s University medical school in 1998. He then completed residency in Kingston, Ontario in 2003 and became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Afterwards he pursued a Master’s Degree in Community Health and Epidemiology while doing his Urologic Oncology fellowship at UCSF (University of California, San Francisco). He became a Society of Urologic Oncology member in 2005.

Subsequently Dr. Kawakami returned to Canada and started working as an assistant professor at Queen’s University from 2005 to 2009. In 2009, he accepted the opportunity to come to the University of Calgary. Dr. Kawakami’s practice is focused on complex robotic laparoscopic surgery for prostate and kidney cancer. He is also the only surgeon in Southern Alberta that does retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testis cancer that is refractory to chemotherapy.

No Show/Cancellation Policy: As the wait time to be seen in consultation can be long, each appointment is very important. If you cannot make your appointment time, please call ahead to let us know, and if you cannot make the appointment at all, please advise us at least 24 hours in advance so that we may fill the time. To cancel or re-book, call our clinic or use the cancellation form.

Referral Process: For all adult urology referrals, please use the Urology Central Intake Referral form as the cover page for your referral, and fax the complete referral to Urology Central Intake at 403-592-4250.

Note: referrals are only accepted from a referring office (including general practitioner, family physician, or other specialty).

The referring office will receive a receipt of referral acknowledgement from the Urology Central Intake within 48 business hours (hours of operation: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Friday; closed on statutory holidays). Once received, the referral will be forwarded to an appropriate provider. Triage will be completed by the assigned provider within one to two weeks, as per CPSA standards.
