Reconstructive Procedures

Patients who have undergone radical cystectomy will require a reconstructive procedure. This allows urine to be removed from the body even though there is no longer a bladder.

GW offers the ileal neobladder procedure. Surgeons use a segment of the intestine to create a new bladder (neoblader). Urine is diverted from the kidneys into the neobladder and out to the urethra so it can be released from the body.
