Leading-edge Treatment for Bladder Cancer
Bladder cancer treatments include local surgical resection and placement of chemotherapeutic agents into the bladder. Some patients may be candidates for creation of a new, continent bladder made from the intestine allowing full restitution of urinary function. Robotic surgery may also be an option for appropriate candidates who require removal of the bladder (cystectomy). During diagnostic cystoscopic surgeries, the team uses leading-edge Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology to help diagnose and stage bladder cancers earlier.
