The London Clinic hosted three live surgeries for the ‘International Symposium of Advanced Robotic Techniques in Urology’ conference on 19 to 21 January 2015 within our Hybrid operating theatre. The live surgical procedures were performed by leading surgeons and streamed into University College London Hospitals (UCLH) for delegates of the conference to watch and take away top tips in robotic surgery.

The London Clinic’s Hybrid theatre is one of the most advanced theatres in the world and caters for complex vascular surgery.

Mr Senthil Nathan, Consultant Urological Surgeon at The London Clinic said “We are delighted to have hosted complex live surgeries at The London Clinic. This exciting conference saw 90 leading robotics surgeons from across the world come together to share best practice with our peers – including performing live surgery cases and providing live training for delegates in cutting edge robotic techniques.

There were a number of practical experiences for delegates; including watching live NeuroSafe prostatectomy performed by a leading surgeon for the first time in the UK and observing the advanced surgical systems hosted in the innovative Hybrid theatre.”   

A snapshot of the surgeries showcased included:

  • NeuroSafe prostatectomy for high risk prostate cancer
  • Neural stem cell implantation prostatectomy
  • Robotic Millin’s prostatectomy
  • Robotic intracorporeal neobladder formation
  • Robotic intracorporeal uretroileal anastomosis#
  • Robotic extended lymph node dissection
  • Robotic dismembered pyeloplasty
  • Robotic retroperitoneal node dissection
  • Robotic nephroureterectomy

Mr Nathan added: “We are privileged to share our expertise with others and it’s amazing to be part of pioneering robotic treatments for the benefit of patients in the UK. A number of complex procedures are now conducted through progressive robotic surgeries and a minimally invasive approach, which has changed the world of robotics to improve patient outcomes significantly.”
