Memorial Sloan Kettering experts discuss their multidisciplinary approach to identifying and treating bladder cancer.
In a recent discussion as part of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s CancerSmart lecture series, bladder cancer experts spoke at a public event about symptoms and risk factors, various disease stages, and the latest treatment options available for bladder cancer.
Given the complexity of the disease, the experts emphasized the advantages of receiving treatment at a highly experienced facility such as Memorial Sloan Kettering, where hundreds of patients are cared for each year.
“It certainly is a team approach to managing people with bladder cancer,” says medical oncologist Dean F. Bajorin. “I think one of the major advantages to this type of center is directly related to the individual expertise of everybody involved, from pathologists making sure your slides have been correctly read, to nurses that help you get through various procedures, to the doctors who are working together to optimally manage the different stages of the disease.”
