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 consulted with Dr. Moon before scheduling surgery for a thoracic aortic aneurysm. He provided concise, highly informed advice that enabled me to decide in favor of life-changing surgery. Later, he performed the surgery with great skill, which enabled a speedy recovery for me. Through the process, his staff advocated for me with the insurance company and kept me informed at all times.
My husband was admitted to Barnes Hospital's cardiac unit through the ER in congestive heart failure. Besides classic blockages, his mitral valve was leaking badly. We did not pick Dr. Moon--he was selected for us through the hospital's triage procedures, probably because of his superior technical skills around valve repair. Moon explained the surgery and kept me from going nuts over the 10-day period when my husband would not come out from under anesthesia. He's a first-rate physician with a refreshing lack of arrogance. I told him we'd be back for my bypass operation in 5 years and he was not allowed to retire before then!
Exceptional care given by Dr Marc Moon, Dr Donnly,Rita, all the RN's and the wonderful Fellows. Thank You to Dr S. Jain for referring my husband to this wonderful, talented group for Aortic Valve replacement and Bypass surgery. My husband's case was complicated by his past health hx of Hodgkins with radiation, Dr Moon was able to replace his aortic valve and do a bypass with great success. Dr Moon & Team saved my husband's life, Thank You!
