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 Chen And his Clinical assistant, Amanda Burns, have made my hand surgery an excellent experience. I have had 4 major surgeries in my life. Dr Chen is the finest Surgeon I've ever met or dealt with. His calm reassurance and ability to listen, truly made me feel at ease with every step of the process. Everyone in his office was pleasant and caring. A true bright spot in our health care system. I would highly recommend him to any family member or friend
Dr Chen is the best Surgeon I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He fixed my hand when I cut a tendon and ligament. His calm re-assurance made it very easy for me to agree to the surgery. The results were exactly what he described. The operation took place at Saint Mary's in Langhorne PA. It was the best hospital experience I have ever had. I have had 4 major surgeries before this one. I highly recommend Dr Chen. he is an amazing doctor and surgeon. He is a great guy too
I found Dr. Chen to be an excellent surgeon and person. He was not quick to jump into surgical options, tried injections and PT first for my shoulder and bicep. Always showed concern and took time, I never felt rushed. When surgery was decided necessary, Dr. Chen was very clear in his explanations of the surgical procedure, post-op expectations and outcomes. I could not have been more pleased with his expertise, professionalism and caring demeanor. I can say 100% that he is fantastic. Thanks Dr. Chen !
