NRP-304

In January the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) celebrated three years of saving and transforming cancer patients’ lives through robotic surgery. The state-of-the-art robotic surgery equipment, operated by a surgeon, carried out the first radical prostatectomy in Norwich on 18th February 2016 to remove the prostate of a cancer patient, and since then has been used on average four times a week to help save more lives. Surgeons use the four-armed robot and console, which provides a magnified 3D view, for robotic assisted prostatectomies, bladder removal (cystectomy), partial kidney and kidney removal (nephrectomy) and colorectal surgery.
