Dr Felix Chan performs San first

On Friday the 13th December 2013, Dr Felix Chan undertook the first laparoscopic hysterectomy at the San using the Da Vinci robot.

 

Great skill and care was shown by the entire team throughout the procedure. “It’s always a team effort,” Dr Chan said.

 

The procedure is a great step forward in the treatment of cancer, hysterectomies and other gynaecological conditions.

 

Robotic surgery means that recovery times are shorter and less painful and there is less scarring to the body and less blood loss during the procedure.
