Urology

The Wesley Hospital is a Centre of Excellence for Prostate Cancer Care. The Wesley offers the most comprehensive urology service in Queensland especially for the treatment of prostate disease. Located on one campus, the Wesley Urologists, Medical Oncologists and Radiation Oncologists work together to provide evidence based treatment for prostate cancer.

In an Australian first, The Wesley Hospital is now offering a unique MRI technique for prostate cancer detection, shown in a world-first trial to significantly decrease the need for biopsies and increase the accuracy of the diagnosis of life-threatening prostate cancer. The trial was conducted by Senior Wesley Urologist Dr Les Thompson and Dr Rob Parkinson, from Wesley Medical Imaging. For more information on this new prostate screening option, please contact one of our Urologists.

Treatment options for prostate cancer patients include the latest in minimally invasive surgery (including robotically assisted prostate surgery) as well as high and low dose brachytherapy. In consultation with their Urologist, patients have access to the treatment option that is most appropriate for them. These services are further complimented by specialised nursing staff, including a Prostate Cancer Care Nurse, and a dedicated urology ward in the Wesley’s new East Wing.

The urology unit has extensive surgical and medical support to enable us to undertake a vast range of urological surgeries including: open, laparoscopic and robotically assisted radical prostatectomy, major kidney operations and operations on the prostate including ‘TURP’. Surgery for other urological concerns such as bladder disease and continence (female and male) is also performed. Renal stone management is also a focus for this unit. The technology to enable the Wesley to treat renal stones in a variety of ways is available.

ROBOTICALLY ASSISTED PROSTATE CANCER SURGERY 

Surgeons at The Wesley Hospital have performed over 2000 procedures using the robotic device, the da Vinci Surgical System, to perform innovative minimally invasive prostate cancer surgery. Robotic surgery is a form of laparoscopic surgery and is performed through small abdominal incisions using a camera and other instruments (rather than making larger incisions as in open procedures).

The instruments are remotely manipulated robotically by the surgeon at a workstation within the operating theatre. There are many benefits to the patient from this type of surgery including less post operative pain, less blood loss, less scarring, shorter hospital stay, and faster return to normal activities.
