Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Bladder Cancer Surgery
Bladder cancer surgeries can often be as invasive as the cancer itself. While treatments are designed to increase the eventual surgery’s chances of success, the surgeries themselves cause considerable damage to the body. Typical surgery requires a certain degree of strength to survive and long recovery times. It can also leave behind unsightly scars. Minimally invasive surgeries have many benefits for patients that traditional surgery methods do not allow.
An increase in the incidence of bladder cancer among diabetics can be attributed to the Type-2 diabetes drug Actos. Actos has been shown to drastically increase a person’s likelihood of developing bladder cancer when used as directed. If you have taken Actos regularly and since been diagnosed with bladder cancer, the Actos attorneys of Williams Kherkher can help you seek financial compensation.

Benefits of Laparoscopic Cancer Surgery
Minimally invasive surgeries utilize very small incisions (less than 3cm long) and advanced technology to remove cancerous tissue while minimizing harm to healthy tissue. These surgeries use advanced imaging and robots to allow surgeons to perform incredibly delicate and precise maneuvers without having to subject a patient to the trauma of less sophisticated procedures. This has numerous benefits including:
- Less pain, blood loss, and scarring
- Less time in hospital recovering
- Earlier return to normal activity
- Not as many complications after the surgery
These robot-armed surgeries also allow the surgeon to make more precise moves and enjoy a larger range of motion than they would otherwise be able to enjoy. This also helps increase the chances of successful surgery, especially when handled by a skilled surgeon.
If you have been diagnosed with bladder cancer after having taken Actos as directed, the two may be related. For help with your Actos lawsuit, contact Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today.
