Kingman Regional Medical Center uses localized chemotherapy to treat bladder cancer

Kingman Regional Medical Center’s (KRMC) WL Nugent Cancer Center has begun using intravesicle method to treat bladder cancer. This process delivers chemotherapy directly to the bladder through a catheter whereas traditionally patients receive chemotherapy in the whole body through an IV. Only one of KRMC’s patients has received localized chemotherapy treatment and is responding well, according to Kari Wheeler, KRMC nurse who specializes in oncology.
