Pelvic Wellness Clinic
The Urology Hospital’s Pelvic Wellness Clinic is a unique, multidisciplinary clinic that combines the expertise of specialists with a common focus on the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor disorders. The dedicated specialists combine urology, urogynaecology and colorectal surgery as a one-stop clinic for diagnosing and treatment of all pelvic health needs.
Robotic surgery was introduced in SA in 2013 when the urology hospital acquired the first robotic-assisted surgical system. Since then, the hospital has performed more than a 1 000 robotic procedures - the large majority (about 96%) being prostatectomies (surgical removal of the cancerous prostate). The robotic system can also be used for partial nephrectomies (removal of cancerous parts of the kidney), cystectomies (removal of the bladder) and could in future be applied to gynaecological procedures, female incontinence and colorectal surgery.
