Dr. Jonathan Wright
Dr. Jonathan Wright specializes in urologic oncology, treating bladder, prostate, kidney, penile, and testicular cancers. In this video, Dr. Wright talks about treating bladder cancer. When a patient with bladder cancer comes to SCCA they are going to see someone who treats bladder cancer on a daily basis. SCCA is one of the few centers that treat muscle invasive bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is more common than most people realize. It is the 4th most common cancer in men and the 11th in women. Many cases of bladder cancer are not aggressive, low grade, non-invasive cancer that rarely progresses. Muscle invasive bladder cancer, on the other hand, requires more radical treatment that often requires surgical removal of the bladder. SCCA has several techniques for handling removal of the bladder including total reconstruction called a neo bladder. Very few places are doing bladder removal and even fewer are doing them robotically. SCCA is on the leading edge of robotic removal of bladder cancer.
