Our Bladder Cancer Doctors

Our bladder cancer team consists of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons. Surgery is our most common form of bladder cancer treatment – we can do this for 60 to 70 percent of bladder cancer cases. Henry Ford has a team approach to bladder cancer, which is why a tumor board meets weekly to review the bladder cancer cases for coordinated, expert treatment recommendations.
