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.

After having seen two other doctors for painful calcium deposits in my fingers, their only remedy was for me to take pain med. By accident I found Hand Surgery LTD in the phone book and met with Dr. Goldberg. He immediately diagnosed me with Limited Scleroderma (Crest Syndrom). He was very thorough in telling me not only about the syndrom, but referring me to other specialists for other symptoms related to the disease. He operated on my finger and provided excellent care and therapy. When I followed through on his referrals, I discovered I had several other health problems. Without his care and concern I certainly would not be well informed about my health. His entire staff (receptionist, nurse, therapist) was nothing but kind and helpful.
He and his staff exceeded every expectation I had. I was injured and in pain, and even though their office was clearly busy as I observed them rearrange schedules to fit in another needy patient, they were always calm, professional, and caring. I had many questions and follow up calls and they were always kind and helpful. I believe Dr. Goldberg is a skilled, competent surgeon who still manages to have the people skills necessary so you don't feel like a number.
