Robot Assisted Prostatectomy

Robot Assisted ProstatectomyBournemouth Private Clinic is pleased to offer robotically assisted prostatectomy using the revolutionary Da Vinci Surgical System. This is a new type of keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery for prostate cancer and is not yet widely available in the UK. The procedure is carried out at Royal Bournemouth Hospital NHS Trust using the hospital's specialist facilities and dedicated highly trained urological team.

The potential benefits of having laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery rather than traditional surgery are:

  • Less bleeding
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer complications
  • Significantly less pain
  • A shorter stay in hospital
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal daily activities

We are happy to welcome both self-pay and insured patients.
