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. Wood was very clear when explaining my problem. She took the time to show me what my x-rays showed and ensured I understood it. Unlike with many other Dr, i never felt rushed, which I really appreciate. She is a true professional and has a great staff, like Nicole White, her occupational therapist that i visited twice already and was great. Within two sessions, I am already seeing significant improvement in my finger. THANK YOU!
I have been to her for three separate wrist breaks. She has done two surgeries on me. I have full mobility in one wrist, and had my last surgery less than three weeks ago and already have very good mobility. I have always gotten right in with really no wait time. I would never let any other doctor treat my wrist.
