Meet Dr. Joseph Jensen, DO

Dr. Joseph Jensen

Dr. Jensen is a board certified general surgeon and Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons. He has been in practice in Davis and Weber Counties for 12 years. His practice in general surgery has included gastric bypass, surgical treatment of various cancers, most commonly including breast and colon cancer, as well as hernia and complex abdominal wall reconstruction, and other very delicate and complicated lifesaving procedures, often on the most critically ill patients. As a general surgeon, Dr. Jensen has also specialized in treatment of varicose veins and venous disease, body contouring and laser aesthetics procedures including tummy tuck, liposuction, CoolSculpting®, and injection of Botox and dermal fillers.

Dr. Jensen is the most experienced practitioner treating varicose veins in northern Utah. Over the years, he has developed a very unique skillset that allows him to offer the best possible treatment of varicose veins with the least invasive approach. His experience and expertise in the treatment of varicose veins distinguishes him from most of the practitioners in the community who still use much more invasive techniques to achieve the same treatment results. For many years, he worked as a national consultant and proctor for other physicians across the country needing guidance in the treatment of venous disease and painful varicose veins. For years, physicians traveled to Layton, Utah, to observe Dr. Jensen treat patients with varicose veins. Dr. Jensen is the ONLY provider treating his vein patients. This differs drastically from other clinics where patients are commonly seen and treated by nurses or physician assistants.

Dr. Jensen has been a pioneer in robotic surgery. He was the first certified practicing general surgeon in the field of robotic surgery in the state of Utah. Since that time, he has served as a national proctor for Intuitive Surgical, the manufacturer and primary educator of surgeons in robotic surgery worldwide.

Dr. Jensen is a surgeon of firsts. He is usually the first to offer new and less invasive surgical options in the community. Examples include, laparoscopic hernia repair, advanced laparoscopic approach to bowel resection, single site surgery, and the application of robotic surgery to improve surgical outcomes. His patients always benefit from a cutting edge surgical approach with the best possible outcomes available.

The primary focus of his practice has become varicose vein treatment, body contouring and aesthetic procedures. Dr. Jensen is a gifted surgeon who loves helping people achieve a specific result. He has a unique ability to sculpt and craft the final product that was discussed and planned for. He loves to help people feel more confident, happier about their health and appearance, and their importance.

Dr. Jensen is a giver by nature. He is fair, kind and patient. He goes above and beyond the usual to provide the best for people. He goes yearly to Guatemala and operates on people in need there.

Dr. Jensen graduated from Weber State University with a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology. He graduated from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1999 and did his general surgery residency at Michigan State University. He is a pursuer and proponent of ongoing and lifelong continuing education. He is constantly learning and improving his surgical skill and his ability to provide the best possible outcome for his patients. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Association, American Medical Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, American College of Osteopathic Surgeons, American College of Phlebology.

Dr. Jensen was born in Orem, Utah. He lives in Kaysville with his wife and three children. He loves family, work and the great outdoors. Besides work and family, his passion is exploring, traveling, hiking, biking, laughing and enjoying good times with the people he loves.
