State-of-the-art Urology Facilities, Technology & Innovation
The San is known as a leader in the private health care industry and is constantly looking to ensure that it is at the forefront of new technology and innovative surgical techniques. We are well recognised for our innovative approach to urological services. The Hospital’s years of experience, together with the first-class reputation of our surgeons, staff, facilities, and technologies attract thousands of patients each year.
Our new Clinical Services Building has 10 additional operating theatres, providing a total of up to 24 operating theatres.
The San's Prostate Centre operates at the fore-front in prostate diagnosis and treatment, with some of the most advanced technology in the world today at our fingertips. Our leading edge diagnostic services include world class equipment for accurate prostate diagnosis, and our highly skilled urologists specialise in the most up-to-date medical and surgical treatments - and they have our state of the art facilities and caring staff to support them.
The Hospital was the first in NSW to use cutting-edge Greenlight Laser technology for the treatment of Benign Prostate disease. In consultation with their specialist, our patients also have the option to use High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), a non-invasive alternative in the treatment of prostate cancer. Of course many of our surgeons are skilled in robotic surgery, using the state-of-the-art da Vinci Robot, which can be less invasive and deliver patients back their active lives more quickly.

The San is NSW’s only accredited Prostate Imaging Centre of Excellence.
The latest multi parametric MRI (mpMRI) techniques, now available at the San, have radically changed the way clinicians have traditionally approached prostate cancer diagnosis and intervention.
In 2015 San Radiology was awarded with Centre of Excellence accreditation in Prostate MRI by Radboud University Medical Centre (RUNMC), Nijmegen Holland, which is is a world leader in prostate imaging and research. Our prostate MRI radiologists and radiographers have been trained by Prof Jelle Barentz, one of Europe’s leading Prostate MRI experts lecturing internationally on prostate cancer diagnosis.
For our prostate patients, this accreditation means:
- San Radiologists and technicians have been trained and accredited by the global leaders in prostate imaging
- San Radiology’s technology, techniques and methodology is world’s best practice
- For difficult cases we have the ability to seek second opinions and collaborate with the RUNMC Prostate MR Reference Centre team.
