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.

I had triple bypass surgery in 2016 and like most new cardiac patients I was very nervous. Dr. Auteri immediately put me at ease, for he listened carefully to my concerns and treated me like a real person. The surgery went very well and the staff at Doylestown Hospital were all professional, caring, and attentive. In my post-operative appointment once again he gave me his full attention and even checked up on me a week later. I would highly recommend Dr. Auteri and the Doylestown Staff.
Dr Auteri and all of his staff at Doylestown Heart Institute is the finest organization you could ever want . I received quadruple coronary bypass surgery. Dr Auteri is a gifted surgeon who makes you feel as if everything will be ok.The entire staff is great. His care before,during ,and after the surgery was exceptional. He is a really nice guy.
I recently met with Dr. Auteri for a consultation for valve replacement surgery. I was blown away at not only the time Dr. Auteri spent with me (over an hour), but the way he spoke to me and my family and explained everything. His staff was so calming and caring, and his nurse, Kim, was extremely kind and knowledgeable. I left his office with a feeling of relief that I was in the right place. I am having surgery with him in 2 weeks and I am confident I made the right decision on who will be saving my life.
