I underwent Da Vinci robot assisted prostatectomy at Kent & Canterbury Hospital.
The diagnostic process was fast and efficient. The staff were all very efficient, helpful and responsive. No expensive journeys to London hospitals.
The surgeon was very supportive, informative and proficient. I was in hospital for only 33 hours and was fully mobile - so no bed blocking. I had discomfort for a few days but nothing that I could describe as pain. After 2 weeks I was back in the gym.
I am 70 years old and now confidently look forward to my 80's!
The whole system is fantastic, guarantees excellent patient care and recovery and saves a lot of NHS money compared to the traditional open surgery.
