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. Richard S Schenk has the following 2 specialties
- Trauma Surgery
Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

this callous surgeon operated on my wife for a broken hip . never came to see me immediately after the surgery and this so called surgeon still hasnt seen us over a month after the surgery. he took his money and ran . he is one pathetic human being. i have to contact him now to ask if he is ever going to check on her recovery. one digusting ,greedy individual
I wouldn't be walking today if it weren't for the excellent care I received from Dr. Schenk after an automobile accident where my left leg was broken in 3 places. Also had head and shoulder injuries. He and his staff were the best. I can make a comparison to other orthopedic Dr.'s as my husband previously had gone to one, and the treatment was not comparable to the wonderful Dr. Schenk.
