Inland Empire patients who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer may require bladder removal in order to treat the disease. Previously, the bladder removal procedure — known as a cystectomy — had to be performed as an open, invasive surgery.
Today, Rancho Mirage patients can benefit from advanced technology and enjoy a minimally-invasive option. Urology experts can now perform this bladder surgery by utilizing a surgical robotic assistant. The da Vinci® Cystectomy is becoming increasingly popular for patients who require bladder removal as a treatment for bladder cancer.
If you are experiencing some of the signs and symptoms of bladder cancer and want to know what treatment options would be best for you, set up a consultation appointment with your trusted urology expert as soon as possible.
Remember to visit your urologist on a regular basis, for this is the best way to ensure early detection of all cancer types and guarantee the best possible results from treatment.
