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.

Dr. Maged S Mikhail has the following 3 specialties
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.
- Vascular Surgery
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. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

He is the nicest and the most intelligent person I've ever met. He actually spends time with patients and really cares about his patients. He accepts most insurances. He tries to find the core problem as far as veins are concerned and works with insurance companies to get the authorizations that are necessary. I had seen 2 other doctors before I went to see Dr. Mikhail and I was not told that my varicose vein problem can be covered by insurance. I really had pain and burning symptoms which I guess are signs of varicose veins. I would highly recommend him.
I had very bad varicose veins and they started to cause me discomfort. I searched for local certified phlebologists in the area and found Dr. Mikhail. I called and made an appointment spoke to Sarah and she was very informative. She scheduled me within that week. I went in for a consultation and I had a ultrasound scan done. I met Dr. Mikhail, very intelligent and friendly doctor. He was aware of my need to treat my ugly veins. He said I needed surgery, Ablation (I am not sure if I spelled it right). Very minimally invasive surgery I was able to returned to work two days later. I have PPO, thankfully my insurance approved the treatment. I'm currently under injection treatments every four weeks but the results, I must say, are phenomenal. I am very happy. The staff is great and they take their job very seriously. At the same time they try to make you feel welcome and never deny their services. I recommend Dr. Mikhail.
It was hard to make an appointment since the Dr has two practices but I was able to get in within 2 wks. The staff is very sweet and tries to help as much as thry can. They accept most insurances too. I was told that I will need vein surgery and my insurance would cover it. I only paid for my coinsurance and had the treatment. The Dr is very precise and he is smart. He takes his time with the diagnostic scan to tell you exactly what you have- so expect to be there for 2 hrs on your initial visit. At least your money doesn't go to waist because he takes his time to see you and explains everything. ( not one of those offices where you pay and wait, the Dr comes in for 5 minutes to see you. You don't get to ask your questions). I was very happy with my results and will recommend him to friends and family. He also did some spider vein injections and that was not painful unlike my previous experiance.
