Bowel and prostate cancer

Patients who come to us for treatment of colorectal and urological cancers will benefit from a less invasive surgical technique available to our surgeons.

The hospital has recently bought a da Vinci Xi robotic system, which will be used across the disciplines of colorectal, urological and cardiac surgery.

This new robot will support our colorectal surgeons when performing lower rectal cancer surgery, as it will improve their surgical vision, access and control.

Patients benefit from this minimally invasive surgery from:

  • reduced operation times
  • shorter hospital stays
  • fewer complications
  • less need for pain medicine
  • faster recovery times
  • minimal scarring.

Robotic assisted surgery for removing the prostate also provides the patient with the same benefits.
