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. Ross T Lyon has the following 1 specialty
- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
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. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Dr. Lyon was patience with all the questions I asked and answered so with care. He made sure I was comfortable and was compassionate to any pain I endured during the procedure. His follow up was prompt and thorough, making sure I was healing properly. I would recommend him to any one of my family/friends and will be going back to him for future vein needs.
I had sclerotherapy for spider veins. Dr. Lyon injected the veins and he was obviously sensitive and competent, something you might not find in a technician or non-MD who does these kinds of things. I am glad I had a surgeon do this because pressure and type of solution used is important to get the best results (Google it). I was very happy with the time he took with me and did not feel rushed at all. He had a calm and unrushed manner and he answered all of my questions as well as explaining details about my veins to me. He also did not push any kind of extra treatment or service and was in fact generous with his time and skill. Pain level was quite low and I think his skill helped with this.
I am a 47 year old female and have suffered from moderate varicose veins for the past 12 years. The swollen areas and skin discoloration made it uncomfortable for me to wear shorts or skirts without dark stockings. I saw Dr. Lyon for three sclerotherapy treatments and the look of my legs is greatly improved. The procedures were nearly painless, just stinging during the injections and my recovery was quick between treatments, generally 2 weeks. The office manager was great, she confirmed appointments and was flexible with the times I had available for appointmetns. Great overall experience.
