Bladder Cancer Center

Dr.Tuerk-OR

The Steward Bladder Cancer Center is leading the way in New England for the treatment of bladder cancer and other genitourinary tumors. Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons and oncologists is providing better outcomes for patients of all ages, especially those over the age of 75. 

Recent studies have shown that the majority of bladder cancer patients 75 years old or older don’t receive the most aggressive surgical treatment options available, which can reduce mortality rates, due to the concerns of the potential risks of conventional surgery. At the Steward Bladder Cancer Center, our surgeon uses the da Vinci® Cystectomy robotic surgical system, a minimally invasive approach, giving patients access to curative treatments. Read more about our bladder cancer treatments...

Along with offering cutting edge technology, we guarantee quality care that is coordinated and seamless. Each patient meets with our urological surgeon, along with expert urological oncologists, radiation oncologists, hematology oncologists, nurse navigators, social workers and nutritionists to create a personalized treatment plan. Read more about the team...

Our Hematology Oncology Outpatient Center is affiliated with Dana-Farber Community Cancer Care. Patients receive all the protocols and procedures, and have access to the latest clinical trials and research, as one would receive at Dana-Farber’s campus but don’t have to travel into downtown Boston to receive treatment and care.

Commission on Cancer

Our cancer program is nationally accredited with commendation by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
