Recent diagnosis of TCC in upper lobe of rt. kidney. Recommended for endoscopic surgery for partial kidney removal or possibly removal of whole kidney. Any suggestions for expert surgeons in South Florida or Florida as a whole? Thanks.

Click this link. Dr. Caso is an amazing Urology Oncology surgeon. I was lucky to have him at the Miami VA where he practices two days a week. Next door at University of Miami is where his offices are. He also teaches there. I've worked in healthcare for more than 30 years and I've met very few doctors of his stature. If you should see him you could say he comes recommended by Jeff Kopelow. He did my partial nephrectomy last Feb 28th. Just tell him that pain in the neck CT MRI tech he had to deal with. Let me know if you follow up with him.

Best of luck
