“I was referred to a specialist at The Urology Hospital by our family doctor because of an increasing PSA level. After some tests and a biopsy I was diagnosed with cancer of the prostate. During a routine visit to the doctor I was told about Robotic Surgery. This less invasive procedure appealed to me. I had a radical prostatectomy on the morning of 24 October, spent the afternoon and night in intensive care. The next day I was transferred to a ward and the 3rd day I was discharged from hospital. During my stay in hospital and after being discharged I experienced very little pain or discomfort.
It would appear to me that Robotic Surgery is less traumatic and therefore fast-tracked the healing and recovery process.”
