Where to access Robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP)

Those Consultants who perform 100 RALP procedures (robotic assisted laprascopic prostatectomy) procedures per year in the NHS and Private sector in the UK being the most experienced robotic prostatectomy surgeons. We have listed those Consultants whom we aware perform around 100  RALP procedures per annum both in the NHS and Private sector in the UK. For example Chris Ogden and Chris Eden have both performed more than 2,500 procedures. The list is based on search findings and may not be complete. Some RALP surgeons have been included, such as in Northern Ireland, as their are no practitioners in these areas who perform that number of procedures per annum. Note: 100 is an arbitrary cut off and their are many excellent surgeons who perform fewer procedures per annum. For a full list of Surgeons who perform RALP, including volume and outcome data, you can access the British association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) database which is organised by region. Click the link button below.

If you are a self pay patient, and are prepared to travel, you may also wish to consider the Martini Klinik in Hamburg. Performing around 2200 procedures a year, the Martini Klinik is not only the biggest Prostate Cancer Center in Germany but the number one worldwide. Compared to the biggest American university clinics, the Mayo-Clinic and the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,  almost double the amount of operations  are carried out at the Martini Klinik. Further it keeps very detailed records on the clinic performance and outcomes on the website. Costs are believed to be around 16,000 Euros for the procedure but you would need to corroborate that figure by contacting the clinic by clicking the button.
