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.

My husband Tom had an unexpected and sudden surgery in 2012 leaving us very little time to research surgeons. We were referred to and met Dr. Mcfadden the day of the surgery and were blessed that he is such a caring and skilled surgeon. Tom's condition turned out to be much more extensive than what appeared on the CT scan so the surgery which was projected to be 45 minutes, turned out to be 4 plus hours long. Dr. Mcfadden had to very skillfully and carefully work on my husband's lung to avoid damaging it. During Tom's hospital stay, we observed how respectfully and professionally Dr. Mcfadden interacted with the hospital staff and with the USC students who sometimes accompanied him on his daily visits. Dr. Mcfadden's reputation for excellence with his patients, staff, and even his peers is certainly well deserved!!!
