Maz...this is an older site but lists top hospitals in the NIH
Apparently if in the UK you want a referral to The Royal Marsden
The NIH should be able to help you. I just know a recent mandate made in the UK was to refer all bladder cancer patients to major bladder cancer centers due to dismal results. I posted it somewhere here...i'll find it.
Since things are different in the UK, I think somebody in the UK probably has to take that role. Some places are better than others and some doctors have more experience in specific types of surgeries.
Someone just needs to do the research and share that information. Either that, or folks can post their experiences.
As for "victim", I don't know because I have never been a victim and never will be a victim...
I just came across your post: MAJOR BLADDER CANCER HOSPITAL IS NOT AN OPTION. I must have missed it the other day. Thanks for posting that and trying so hard to drive that point home.
I got a total of 5 opinions before I got my neobladder. I took the time to travel to Mayo in Minnesota and went to several major university hospitals in Chicago. I evetually picked The University of Chicago Hospital and all the time I took making that decision payed off big time. I hope everyone that is newly diagnosed reads your post and takes apropriate action. We have all been stressing that on this site, but I think your posting really conveys the message strongly.
