If you have been recently diagnosed with bladder cancer and are considering surgery as an option for treatment be sure to research all of your options. Traditionally, open cystectomies (removal of the bladder) have been the primary surgical option for treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Through his specialized training and expertise, Dr. Berry is able to use the newest robotic technology available to perform this operation. Dr. Berry has found that by utilizing this technology patients he has operated on are losing less blood, experiencing less pain post-operatively, spending less time in the hospital after the procedure and returning to normal activities more quickly than when he has performed open cystectomies. If you would like to learn more about the benefits and risks of this procedure or would like a consultation with Dr. Berry, contact El Dorado Urology at (520) 202-3606.
