DON’T STRUGGLE WITH TRADITIONAL OPTIONS
Radiation seems to be an easy choice initially, but it has tremendous side effects in future years including bladder cancer, rectal cancer, radiation burns to the bladder and rectum, and urethral stricture disease. Proton therapy is another form of radiation and there is little to no long term data supporting its supposed superiority over traditional radiation. We have targeted and precise therapies for localized bladder cancer with great results and minimal risk of sexual and urinary dysfunction. These options are tried, true, and proven.

GOALS OF BLADDER CANCER TREATMENT
CANCER FREE SURVIVAL / GREAT QUALITY OF LIFE
The most important goal of bladder cancer treatment is living a a great life, cancer free.
PREVENT CANCER PROGRESSION
The second goal is to prevent cancer progression by utilizing medicines in the bladder or intravenously that can prevent cancer progression or recurrence.
PRESERVE URINARY & SEXUAL FUNCTION
The third goal is to ensure you have excellent urinary function to protect the kidneys and bladder. Simultaneously, we want to ensure your sexual health is optimized.
ADVANCED TREATMENT OPTIONS
All patients with bladder cancer must undergo surveillance as recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Guidelines. This is done in our state of the art surgery centers with anesthesia.
Several medicines including BCG, mitomycin, and Valstar can be given inside the bladder to help prevent cancer from recurring or progressing.
KEYTRUDA INTRAVENOUS THERAPY
Advanced Urology has the latest medicine with Pembrolizumab or Keytruda which is given intravenously to prevent cancer from progressing.
All patients with bladder cancer must undergo surveillance as recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Guidelines. This is done in our state of the art surgery centers with anesthesia for a pleasant, pain free experience. This is typically done every 3 months, 6 months, or every year.
Several medicines including BCG, mitomycin, and Valstar can be given inside the bladder to help prevent cancer from recurring or progressing. This is done in the office with a catheter in the bladder. Because the medicine is instilled directly in the bladder, common side effects include mild burning with urination and frequency of urination. Importantly, these medicines do not cause nausea, vomiting, and hair loss associated with typical cancer chemotherapy regimens. Patients can be given oral sedation if necessary which makes the procedure much more comfortable.
KEYTRUDA may be used when your cancer has not spread to nearby tissue in the bladder, but is at high-risk for spreading (high-risk, non-muscle invasive bladder cancer [NMIBC]) and when your tumor is a type called “carcinoma in situ” (CIS), and you have tried treatment with Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) and it did not work, and you are not able to or have decided not to have surgery to remove your bladder
ADVANCED ROBOTIC SURGERY
Robotic surgery is a great option for entire bladder, prostate gland, and lymph node removal for high volume or more aggressive cancers. This often has the highest cure rate for cancer compared to radiation treatment. Robotic surgery is done through 6 small incisions as an outpatient. Benefits of surgery include lymph node removal, more accurate staging, higher cure rates, and the option to add radiation after surgery if needed.
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES: BETTER OUTCOMES AND LESS SIDE EFFECTS
Advanced technology provides the best outcomes with minimal side effects. We utilize Advanced technology with 3D geospatial mapping to precisely kill prostate cancer.
