Healthy Living: Innovative Kidney Cancer Treatment Now Offered at Baptist Health

Jelmyto provides an effective, kidney-sparing option for patients with low-grade upper tract urothelial cancer.

Kyle Basham, MD, a urologist at Baptist Health-Fort Smith, is now offering a new treatment for patients with a rare and difficult-to-treat form of kidney cancer. Jelmyto was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last spring. Dr. Basham is the first in Arkansas to offer the Jelmyto treatment.
