YOU ARE IN LUCK! Well, not for needing the surgery, but because one of the top places in the country for bladder cancer surgery is in your back yard! USC-Norris has a number of really expert doctors and you couldn't go wrong with any of them.
Besides, it is ALWAYS a good idea to get a second opinion on your diagnosis and the options available to you.
Best of luck to you.
