Robotic Assisted Radical Prostatectomy for Mackay

Updated: Sep 30, 2022

Robotic assisted radical prostatectomy is the most popular surgical technique used to treat men with prostate cancer around the world. In fact, over 95% of prostate cancer surgery in the USA is done robotically and Australia is not far behind.

With superior 3D vision and unrivalled dexterity and range of motion, the Da Vinci Xi robotic system allow me to perform nerve sparing surgery for patients with prostate cancer in a way that is simply impossible with old open approaches. This allows my patients to have the best chance possible of preserving their erectile function and having an earlier return to urinary continence.

Robotic surgery is prevalent across all major cities in Australia and I am proud to bring this technology to my patients in Mackay. While I am eagerly waiting for our very own robot here in Mackay, my current patients and I go Townsville to utilise the state of the art facilities at the Mater Pimlico where they have the latest Da Vinci Xi robot.
