Our Expertise at Your Service
When you come to Columbia Cancer for diagnosis and treatment for bladder cancer, you will have your own team of experts. We’re here for your entire journey, from diagnosis to treatment and into survivorship.
Translating Research Into Treatment
Many of our doctors conduct laboratory research—they work to “translate” their lab discoveries into treatments. In fact, some of the treatments used here and at other centers throughout the country were developed in labs at Columbia.

You’ll Have Your Own Team of Bladder Cancer Experts
Cancer diagnosis and treatment requires an entire team of specialists and support caregivers.

At Columbia Cancer, we believe that our discoveries here will end cancer everywhere. As a person with cancer, you may have the chance to participate in a clinical trial while you have current treatments.

We created our Patient Support Services to provide you with care and support outside of traditional medical care. Through this service, you’ll have access to complementary treatments like acupuncture, resources for stress management, yoga therapy, spiritual support, support groups, and more.
