Urologists in Sydney Highly Specialised Urological Care
Dr Lawrence Kim of Advanced Urology is one of the few urologists in Sydney, or indeed in Australia, that offers retzius-sparing robotic radical prostatectomy. This advanced surgical approach to treating prostate cancer, by removing the prostate gland, is based upon the robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy, but is a technique that approaches the prostate from below, rather than above the bladder, thereby preserving some of the key structures responsible for continence. This approach has been proven by a number of international studies to provide a superior continence result for patients.
Dr Lawrence Kim also offers both open and robotic transperitoneal and retroperitoneal approach for complex kidney tumour removal (partial or radical nephrectomy). Retroperitoneal approach is particularly useful for patients with hostile abdomen or tumours located on the back of the kidney. It allows a direct access to the main artery supplying the kidney and the tumour and is often associated with a shorter operative time and enhanced recovery.
Advanced Urology is also one of the leading urology clinics in Australia that that offers a multidisciplinary prostate cancer care in conjunction with radiation and medical oncologists. Dr Kim also runs a multidisciplinary prostate cancer and complex kidney cancer clinics at Westmead hospital.
