Bowel and prostate cancer

At St Vincent's Private Hospital Northside, we lead through innovative medical care.

We embrace new technologies designed to enhance procedures, treatment and care, including robotic systems used in robotic assisted surgeries. Patients who come to us for treatment of colorectal and urological cancers will benefit from a less invasive surgical technique available to our surgeons. Robotic systems support our urologists and colorectal surgeons when performing certain surgical procedures, improving surgical vision, access and control.

Benefits of robotic assisted surgery include:

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