About the offer

Often, especially in the advanced and late stages of bladder cancer, doctors consider removing the organ more beneficial than trying to keep it. In some cases, patients might have indications for bladder removal (cystectomy) even in the early stages of the disease because of specific histological and malignant tumor features. So, medical practitioners must prescribe numerous diagnostic procedures before starting the treatment of any patient with bladder cancer. When the diagnosis is confirmed, and the patient becomes a verified candidate for open bladder removal surgery, doctors must prescribe additional tests, including coagulation studies, an electrocardiogram, and more. They are crucial to decrease the possibility of complications and provide crucial information to save the patient in case of issues (e. g. , bleeding). Before starting the surgery, the patient also undergoes a small preparation period, including a particular diet, some medications, and general recommendations. The patient will receive general anesthesia before the treatment starts. Next, surgeons cut the lower abdomen, above the bladder, reach the organ, and carefully examine all surrounding tissues and organs. Next, doctors remove the bladder along with the tumor and all tissues involved in the malignant process (mainly lymphatic nodes and vessels). In the end, surgeons palace stitches on every layer of previously cut tissues. Also, it’s vital to discuss with the patient the desired way for further urination, as they naturally lose their bladder after the surgery.
