John P. Donohue, M.D. (1932–2008) was the Chairman of the Urology Department and Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Indiana University School of Medicine. He pioneered treatments for testicular cancer, including the nerve-sparing technique. His work with Dr. Lawrence Einhorn led to an increase in cure rate of testicular cancer from 5% to 90%. He studied under Wyland F. Leadbetter and began his career as the Ship's Surgeon aboard the aircraft carrier USS Wasp.
Donohue graduated from Iona Preparatory School, New Rochelle, New York and Holy Cross College in Worchester, Massachusetts in 1954. He received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College, completed initial surgical training at the New York Hospital and received his urologic training at Massachusetts General Hospital. After completing his training, he moved to Indianapolis, Indiana.
In 1971, he became Professor of Urology and Chairman of the Department at Indiana University School of Medicine. He authored numerous articles on testicular cancer.
