John’s Story: Radical Cystectomy with Ileal Conduit

After being diagnosed with bladder cancer, John came to the Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins for its innovative diagnostic and treatment options. When nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer recurred as muscle-invasive, John opted for bladder removal with Trinity Bivalacqua, M.D., Ph.D.


Warren’s Story: Partial Cystectomy for Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

When his non-muscle invasive bladder cancer did not respond to treatment, Warren met with Trinity Bivalacqua, M.D., Ph.D., and Noah Hahn, M.D., at the Johns Hopkins Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute. The unique approach fostered by our multidisciplinary team was able to spare his bladder, facilitating a full recovery and a quick return to his dental practice.
