World class care for prostate cancer

13 Dec 2023

Graham Golding, who describes himself as ‘ever the optimist’ was hopeful his symptoms were IBS at best, perhaps a hernia at worst, and on diagnosis was shocked to find out he had an advanced case of prostate cancer.

Graham was diagnosed and treated in the award-winning Duchess of Devonshire Wing, which is one of the UK’s most modern and technologically advanced cancer hospitals. This is shown by Macmillan Cancer Support awarding The London Clinic a top score through its Macmillan Quality Environment Mark award scheme.

“When you have reason to fear the worst you want accurate and fast results, your treatment plan to swing into efficient action, and to be looked after in a hospital with an impressive track record for advancement.”

“The London Clinic has a world-class calibre of clinicians and surgeons like the highly regarded peer-reviewed Mr. Ashwin Sridhar, a consultant urologist who specialises in prostate and bladder cancer, using minimally invasive surgery. From my first consultation through to my aftercare I instinctively trusted him.”  

“Mr Sridhar is highly skilled in the use of the da Vinci surgical robot for greater targeted accuracy in the removal of cancer cells. I was even more reassured after doing some research that the Clinic has the most advanced version of this technology. When you’re facing a life-saving operation taking nearly five hours you want to know you are getting the best of everything.”  

The London Clinic was the first ever private hospital in the UK to trial and offer robotic surgery for prostate cancer using the da Vinci® Surgical System back in 2005. Now, The London Clinic provides novel techniques to improve accuracy of cancer removal like ClinicSafe and techniques for improving continence recovery like Retzius-sparing robot assisted radical prostatectomy.

Through the use of robotic surgery the surgeon has enhanced vision, precision and control, meaning patients like Graham face fewer side effects and faster recovery times.

Now Graham is back to feeling like his usual self, going out to socialise, and even just kicking a football around the garden.

“I’ve always had private medical insurance. I can honestly say The London Clinic is my preferred choice for treatment. It scores the perfect 10, every time.”
