Nottingham Urology Group's Tom Walton performed the first robot-assisted radical prostatectomies in the East Midlands this week. The robot arrived a few weeks ago and is the only surgical robot in the region. This is a major step forward for patients with prostate cancer having surgery, with lower complication rates, better cancer control and quicker recovery than traditional key-hole surgery. Mr Walton learned the procedure during a year-long fellowship in Australia.
