I live in Coventry and my local urological surgeon does around 70 robotic prostatectomies a year. At my request I got referred on the NHS to a much more experienced surgeon in Guildford who does 300-400 ops a year, with over 3000 total under his belt.
The local consultant even mentioned the Guildford guy’s name when I mentioned a certain prostatectomy procedure, and was totally OK with him doing my prostatectomy. The op was done in Guildford, the catheter removal in Coventry, the post-operative consultation in Guildford, and oncological and urological follow-ups are now back in Coventry, under the auspices of the original surgeon.
Apart from a few quid spent on petrol and train fares, everything went smoothly, especially as the Guildford surgeon charges £19,950 for a prostatectomy in his private clinic!
I have been told I am now ‘cured’, so happy days.
Best of luck,
