The diagnosis of bladder cancer and innovations in treatment will be explored during A Day at the Park on July 29.
The event will be in the Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center on the Roswell Park Cancer Institute campus. The program features Dr. Khurshid Guru, chair of urology and director of robotics at Roswell Park. He has performed more than 500 robotic surgeries to remove the bladder and is considered one of the most experienced bladder surgeons in the world.
Bladder cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the United States and is more likely to be diagnosed in men. Early diagnosis is key and paying attention to symptoms like blood in the urine.
Roswell Park President and Chief Executive Officer Candace Johnson will speak at the event, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Tours of the surgical suite and intensive care unit will be offered to patients, survivors and family members. Hands-on workshops also will be offered.
