The most commonly used robotic surgical system is the da Vinci Surgical System, which consists of robotic arms, a high-definition 3D camera, and specialised surgical instruments.
The South Coast Urology team have access to the latest da Vinci Xi Surgical Robot at Wollongong Private Hospital.
It is important to note that while robotic surgery offers several advantages, not all urologic procedures require robotic assistance. The decision to undergo robotic surgery should be made after a thorough discussion between the patient and the urologist, considering individual circumstances, the complexity of the procedure, and the surgeon’s expertise.
At South Coast Urology, we offer comprehensive, clinically excellent, multidisciplinary urological care. We run clinics in Wollongong, Shellharbour and Nowra and operate at leading private hospitals across the Illawarra.
