Bladder Cancer

Bladder Cancer

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.

Trigger Finger

I had a condition known as trigger finger. I was expecting having to have surgery ( had this done on another finger by another Dr.) Dr. Hollstien was able to repair this condition with an injection. Needless to say I was very happy about that. Their was only minor discomfort during the procedure and after about a month I was no longer experiencing the problem.

Dr. Holstein is kind and compassionate to all of his patients. He never seems rushed and answers all of your questions. He repaired my rotator cuff when no muscles were attached. My shoulder is great now. He is an expert at cortisone injections also. I highly recommend him!

I injured myself and was able to get an appointment the very next day. His staff was very helpful and courteous. Dr. Hollstien gave me all the time I needed, answered all my questions, and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He gave me all the options for my treatment and I left feeling relieved and less worried. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hollstien to anyone with orthopedic needs!

Helped With Many Things

Dr. Holstien is great. He has helped me with tendonitis in my elbow, after several cortisone injections that provided months of relief we finally did surgery which was very sucessful and has been fine for years. He recently helped me with a horribly painful calcific tendonitis of the shoulder. Two weeks after a painless and well placed cortisone shot I had full range of motion and no pain.
