I am not familiar with UC Davis Dept. of Urology, but I certainly would feel more comfortable in a medical school environment.
While the place is important, ever more so is the expertise of the surgeon doing the procedure. If you are interested, for example, in a neobladder you want to know specifically how many per year your urologist does and how long he has been doing them. At least 25-35 per year is minimal. Think of it as if you had a very expensive foreign sports car; you wouldn't trust it to a mechanic who just graduated from jr college and has never seen one! You would look for someone who specializes in your particular model.

Has anyone experienced bladder cancer treatment(s) at UC Davis? Do you know of anyone thwt has had the neo bladder procedure here? NMIBC with high grade in situ as a bonus (I joke about things that scare me)
