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.

In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins.

Dr. Layne Sandridge saved my wife's life! She's very professional, not many smiles...which I understand that brain is working over time. Her words are comforting and anyone who doesn't care for this hidden Angel here on earth "needs" to see a psychologist! She's very smart! Thank you, Dr. Sandridge for saving my wife of 25 yrs. Life!!! =)
Dr. Sandridge was unfortunately the vascular doctor assigned to me when I was in the hospital after my car accident . On a scale 1-10 for bedside manner she would get a ZERO. I have had a lot of doctors throughout my life and she is by far the rudest. She is cold and uncaring. Not only does she not smile but her facial expressions go right with her bedside manner....RUDE! I was in a car accident and she told me while I was in the hospital that the car accident was the cause of my injury. However, when I asked her to put this in writing for the insurance company, she refused.
Dr.Sandridge stood by my hospital bed with other Specialty Doctors trying to figure out why I was paralyzed from waist down. They were talking Guillain-Barre Syndrome and my purplish toes may have to be removed. My case has never been recorded ever before, she finally found the problem and did a 6hr surgery after 5 days. She is loyal, understanding, dependable, explains until you truly understand. As of today, I have all my toes => I dance, play sports. She doesn't mind hugs of appreciation! Great Human & Surgeon! Thank you, Dr. L. Sandridge
