Dr. Magera received his undergraduate degree from Montana State University and subsequently worked at Procter & Gamble as a chemical engineer. After completing medical school, he was selected for and completed his surgical internship and residency in urology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in 2008.

Mayo Clinic residency afforded Dr. Magera the opportunity to author ten manuscripts published in the medical literature. In addition, he presented Mayo Clinic advanced surgical technique movies at regional and national urologic meetings. He continues to foster his relationships with the Professors in Urology at the Mayo Clinic with frequent personal and professional interactions including attendance of the Bi-annual Mayo Clinic Urology Conference.

Mayo Clinic training often focused on treatment of various cancers of the urinary system.  Robotic-assisted surgical techniques to address surgical issues of the urinary system was extensive.
