To date, Urologists at The Urology Hospital have performed over 50 radical prostatectomy cases, all of which have been a huge success. Patients have reported countless benefits of this surgery including shorter hospital stay, quicker healing due to the minimally invasive nature of the surgery and back to everyday normal activities in record time compared with open surgeries.
The average time spent in theatre for a Robotic Surgery case at The Urology Hospital ranges from 3 – 5 hours, with an average hospital stay (including ICU) of 3-4 days. This is remarkable as most open surgery cases would need a minimum of 6 weeks recovery before returning to work!
The cost of the surgery varies dependant on the patients individual case and the patients portion of the account is dependent on which medical aid they belong to and what plan they are on. Most medical aids pay most if not all the costs; however, some only pay a portion of the amount. For more information on what the costs are please consult your Urologist and your medical aid.
The Urology Hospital is excited to be pioneering this technology in the medical field here in South Africa and look forward to many more positive testimonies from satisfied patients who have undergone this revolutionary surgery.
