Robotic surgery is an advanced, minimally invasive surgical technique whereby the surgeon controls robotic arms by a remote console.
These robotic arms control micro-instruments to enable very precise operation within a confined body space and with small incisions.
Due to delicate operation of these instruments and more intricate surgery we hope to give our patients a faster recovery and fewer complications.
Robotic Radical Prostatectomy
Radical prostatectomy is the removal of the prostate for the treatment of prostate cancer. By using robotic surgery we hope to reduce the length of hospital stay and time off work as well as minimising intra-operative blood loss and post-operative pain.
Robotic Partial Nephrectomy
Partial nephrectomy is the removal of a kidney tumour by sparing the kidney and removing only the tumour. By operating robotically we are able to operate on tumours with a minimally invasive keyhole surgery where without robotic surgery the operation would otherwise have to be performed through open surgery.
