Steward Bladder Cancer Center’s unique program uses state-of-the-art robotic techniques, along with a multidisciplinary team approach, for the treatment of bladder cancer and other genitourinary tumors. Our surgeons and oncologists are leading the way in New England with these minimally invasive approaches for the treatment of bladder cancer, especially for patients over the age of 75, and are providing better outcomes for patients.
Along with offering cutting edge technology, we guarantee quality care that is coordinated and seamless. Each patient meets with our urological surgeons, along with expert urological oncologists, radiation oncologists, hematology oncologists, nurse navigators, social workers and nutritionists to create a personalized treatment plan.
Our Hematology Oncology Outpatient Center is affiliated with Dana-Farber Community Cancer Care. Patients receive all the protocols and procedures, and have access to the latest clinical trials and research, as one would receive at Dana-Farber’s campus but don’t have to travel into downtown Boston to receive treatment and care.
The Bladder Cancer Center’s surgical team is led by world renowned robotic surgeon Dr. Ingolf Tuerk. He and his team are highly experienced in performing extensive and complicated bladder surgery in a minimally invasive manner through several tiny holes in the abdomen using the da Vinci® robotic surgical system.
As with other minimally invasive procedures, benefits to the patient may include:
Our cancer program is nationally accredited with commendation by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons as an academic comprehensive cancer program. This distinction is awarded to facilities that commit to providing the best in diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
