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.

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.

I rarely go near doctors, so when I heard I needed a valve repair I freaked out. Through a recommendation I made an appointment with Dr. Argenziano and I have never had a better experience with a doctor, especially considering that this one was going to open up my chest! I was just released from the hospital yesterday and I feel enormous gratitude towards this man. Throughout this ordeal he was totally responsive, communicative, available. He answered phone calls personally! And perhaps most importantly, for me, despite the seriousness of the situation, he always kept me laughing. (Of course he's a great surgeon as well)
I am 44 years old and have had multiple problems, some congenital and some due to ICD implantation beginning at age 29. I found Dr. Argenziano after surfing the NY Presbyterian website, and I consider myself lucky and grateful to have found him. Amazing communication, technical skills and great bedside manner...I felt immediately on our first meeting that he would take excellent care of me, and he sure did. I would refer him to anyone with valvular heart disease!
