Bladder cancer is not a cancer many people have heard of before. But it’s the fourth most common cancer in men and among the top 10 most common in women.
Diagnosed at age 53 with muscle invasive bladder cancer, Steve Baker asked, “what are my options for treatment?” His doctor was a good surgeon, but he told Steve he would need a device or a neo-bladder after his treatment was complete, and he recommended Steve go to the best doctor in the state, Jonathan L. Wright, MD, at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. And that’s what Steve did.
You can meet Steve on our website and read about his treatment with chemotherapy followed by the robotic surgery he had to remove his bladder, prostate, and then reconstruct a neo-bladder.
“I would recommend SCCA to anyone who has access to it,” Steve says. “It’s world-class. You owe it to yourself to check it out, no matter where you live.”
