Our urologists, specially trained in robot-assisted surgeries, have become world leaders in this type of minimally invasive bladder cancer procedure. Robot-assisted surgery benefits include a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and use of less pain medication.

Patients with bladder cancer who are considering or undergoing BCG treatment can download a self-education tool that will help them to better understand their diagnosis and treatment options.

Roswell Park Cancer Institute has been named a 2017–18 Best Hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report and recognized as high-performing for urology.

Patient's Guide to Bladder Cancer

New bladder cancer patients treated at Roswell Park have access to “A Patient's Guide to Bladder Cancer” in our Urology Center. The book helps trace the path of a patient from diagnosis through recovery and survivorship. Not a Roswell Park patient? You can still get the book.


Pioneering Clinical Trials

Roswell Park strives to find better ways to treat this disease through clinical trials, many of which have been pioneered and launched by our own translational research team.
