St Vincent's Private Hospital Sydney’s Urology Department is one of the premier urology departments in Australasia. We offer a full range of services, including cancer services, treatment of benign prostatic disease, an incontinence unit, a comprehensive stone unit and prosthetics.
Cancer of the prostate: We have one of the largest experiences with prostate cancer in the southern hemisphere, backed by comprehensive and evidence-based research. We’ve been both a national and international leader in the initiation and research of therapies such as:
- nerve-sparing surgery
- robotic surgery
- transperineal biopsy techniques
- imaging with MRI and PET/CT scans
- IMRT radiotherapy techniques for targeted treatment
To back this up, we also have the largest tissue bank and data bank in the southern hemisphere.
Our research is conducted through the Garvan Institute and Kinghorn Cancer Centre.
We also offer a support group.
Cancer of the bladder: The department offers full services with superficial bladder cancer, intravesical BCG, neobladder reconstruction and robotic cystectomy.
Cancer of the kidney and testis: We have large experience in complex minimally invasive laparoscopic renal surgery, including robotic partial nephrectomy.
