I do not have personal knowledge but know of several people with complicated situations who were successfully treated at Vanderbilt.

Yes, Vanderbilt is your best option.
I have a good friend who was treated there.

Vanderbilt is top notch! Doug had to have a kidney removed (due to bladder cancer); Dr. Daniel Barocas did his surgery in 2016 and did a great job. We also saw Dr. Duke Herrell in the same office and were very impressed by him. You may just want to ask for an appointment with whichever doctor has done the most neo bladder surgeries.
