In Dallas it is the University of Texas SW medical school Dr. Sagalowsky Professor of Urology and Chief of Urology/Oncology.
MD Anderson in Houston is rated number 1. Drs.Dinney, Kamat and Grossman. It would be easy to Fly from the UK to either Houston or Dallas. I hope this helps good luck.

Hi there, I am recently diagnosed with CA bladder and am living in the UK. I have heard about good treatments in the US and after reading this forum am very interested in a second opionion from an American MD. In your message you mention a top notch specialist in Dallas, and I was wondering if you could pass on his/her details to me. Thanks very much for any help you can give, it certainly is reassuring reading the forum.

I was AGREEING with Patricia. If you have the Opportunity to go to MD Anderson ........ GO! You are so close. They are the foremost bladder cancer hospital. My experience was only to show that MD Anderson is THE Place to get cured.... but they are also teaching other Dr. their methods. But why go to a student when you can see the teacher not too far away.

I'm sorry there was some loss in the translation when I was trying to convince you to go to MD Anderson.

Still thinking about MD Anderson but I already have 2 opinions. Both said the same. The Dr at UTSW has a good record from what I can find and has been doing the Neo-Bladder since Late 1980'S and does 100 plus Surgery's per year but I am not sure how many Neo-Bladders.
Are you recommending for 3rd opioion or for Surgery?
