Good call Pat.

That is from the same link I posted yesterday. That really looks like a place to check out in that area.

I was dong some more searches for you and came across the University of Oaklahoma Health Sciences Center. They seem to have a large Urology Unit, and also uro oncology.

http://urology.ouhsc.edu/oncology.asp

they had this infor there too, if you do alittle search of their website:

Bladder Cancer
Bladder Cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and the eight most common in women. There are several types and stages of bladder cancer. Many patients can be effectively treated with endoscopic surgery and the installation of medicine into the bladder. A small group of patients however, require removal of the bladder with urinary diversion. In the past, many patients were given an ileal conduit which collected the urine in a bag on the patient's abdomen. Newer techniques have made it possible for patients to have a “neobladder” or new bladder constructed inside the abdomen which removes the need to wear a urine collection bag.

Therapies offered at the OU Medical Center include:

Laparoscopic Cystectomy
Transurethral Resection
Intravesical Therapy
Bladder Preservation Strategies
Bladder removal with creation of a neobladder
Clinical trials in Bladder Cancer at the OU Medical Center

Hope this helps,
Karen

There are no National Cancer Institute recommeded facilties in Oklahoma...however
Hemstreet looks pretty qualified.
The closest NCI or NCCN facility to you i believe is in St. Louis tho i'm not sure where you are in OK.....here is a link to the Siteman center associated with Barnes Jewish Hospital and a very good bladder cancer specialist there is Dr. Adam Kibel.

I called my husbands Dr. and asked if they knew of anyone in Oaklahoma, and they gave the name:

George P. Hemstreet III, M.D., Ph.D.

he studied here in North Carolina, at both Wake Forest & Duke. Here is a link for more info. on him

*Please NOTE* That we do not know of him ourselves, and this is purely information only...You will have to ask your own questions and see if he is a good fit for your mothers situation.**

In addition:I don't know if this is something that you would be interested in, (or if your mother would even qualify for) but there was a phase III Clinical trial in Oaklahoma

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00445601;jsessionid=8C657BB3CFF964B83468F259089F97C9?order=47

Phase III is pretty far up on the Clinical Trial Chain. Depending on how serious her cancer is it may be an option??


Good Luck to you, I hope this helps.,
Karen
I beleive that this Dr. was also either involved or possibly running the trial. Sounds like a good contact....

Does anyone happen to know of a good urologist in Oklahoma? I don't know how/where to begin finding a good/qualified urologist. We live in a small town and are losing confidence in our local urologist. My 76 year-old mother has BC. Thanks, - Lisa
