Larry Urish (Patient) – August 20, 2013

After meeting Dr. Sia Daneshmand and his team at the USC Institute of Urology, I quickly knew I was in very good hands. Everything was explained to me in a simple, friendly manner, and I felt good about our mutual decision to have my bladder removed – something that was essential.

The radical cystectomy, recovery and overall outcome were nothing short of spectacular. Thanks to Dr. Daneshmand’s world-class surgical skills and his use of ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery), every minute, from the first moment in my hospital room until my return to work just four weeks later, was completely pain-free. I stayed in Keck Medical Center, a top-notch facility, for only three nights, an unusually brief time compared with patients who have undergone the same procedure.

The follow-up education and treatment have been super. If I have any future medical issues, I’ll take my body to USC, and I heartily encourage everyone else to do so. Fight on!

Keck Medicine of USC is the University of Southern California’s medical enterprise, one of only two university-owned academic medical centers in the Los Angeles area.
