Welcome to the Why Urology podcast with Dr. Todd Brandt.

This podcast is my personal attempt to teach you about your genito-urinary tract, what can go wrong, and how your urologist may just become your superhero.

The name of the podcast comes from my ongoing need to answer the question that I get so often from patients, friends, and family, “Why Urology? Why did you choose to become a urologist?”

Feb 27, 2021

This is episode number 104 of this podcast that I started as a personal exploration into podcasting, the field of urology, and how we can combine the two to educate a general listening audience about different topics in urology.

 

Today’s topic is bladder cancer, and I want to focus specifically on a procedure that is the first step for most patients in their bladder cancer journey after they are diagnosed with a suspicious bladder tumor, the transurethral resection of bladder tumor or TURBT.

 

The format of this episode is to walk through the ten questions to ask your surgeon about any surgery or procedure and to apply it to the transurethral resection of bladder tumor.

 

The ten questions is a set of questions that I have come up with that I think can apply to any surgical procedure. It is meant to be a general framework for discussing any surgery or procedure with your surgeon.  You can hear that episode of this podcast at
