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've been a patient of Dr. Longo since 1998 when I was flown to Scottsdale Osborn for trauma care. He placed 2 plates in my pelvis & continued to see me until present time. I had a total hip replacement in 2009 & am very happy with the results. Dr. Longo cares greatly about his patients & takes the time to listen to questions or concerns & to answer all questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Longo to others.
While Dr. Longo doesn't have a flashy, expensive office, it makes no difference in how much he cares about his patients. When our son broke his ankle and didn't have insurance, Dr. Longo treated him for free. Dr. Longo did my knee surgery and I was pleased about the outcome. I am currently seeing him for a torn rotator cuff. His PA, Kelsy, is also fantastic. I've only heard positives from Scottsdale Osborn staff and Physical Therapists who work closely with Dr. Longo. I agree.
