Your bladder is the hollow, muscular organ in your lower belly where urine is stored. When you urinate, the muscles of your bladder contract and push urine out through a tube called the urethra. Bladder cancer starts when cells in the bladder start to grow out of control. These cells can form into a bladder tumor. They can also spread outside your bladder to lymph nodes and to structures far from the bladder, like your bones, lungs or liver. This is known as metastasis.

Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins.

I normally do not read this stuff knowing how the negative are going to push their views; and a person who was satisfied and happy goes away saying nothing. I found Doctor Deckey to be one of the greatest doctors I have ever encountered. The only reason I am writing this is to make one small view to all those that insist they left his office either in a casket or a ambulance. When you read this junk keep in mind that there are those that would have complained when Paul Revere made the great ride into history. They would have found something to complain about. Personally I think we are very lucky to have him in our area. I did not give him the high ratings because he is or was a friend or relative i did it because he earned it.
I had to have an emergency surgery and my primary doctor referred me to Dr. Deckey. Dr. Deckey saw me that day and had me on the surgery list for the following day. He was respectful and discussed the procedure before and after the surgery to my husband. His staff was very helpful and kind as well.
