Mr Anurag Golash was invited to address the British Association of Day Surgery meeting in Grimsby on 26/01/2012. He presented his world leading experience of performing laparoscopic (keyhole) kidney surgery (nephrectomy and pyeloplasty) as a daycase.
Staffordshire Urology Clinic Consultant Surgeon Lyndon Gommersall made the Weekend Sentinel for his development of keyhole bladder cancer surgery and enhanced recovery (view article) in Staffordshire. The article describes the advances achieved in terms of time in hospital after Laparoscopic Cystectomy. On average patients after keyhole surgery will go home 8 days after their surgery, most will be home within a week. They also have significant benefits with an earlier return to work and less requirement for painkillers. By prescribing the recovery of patients after surgery patients drink fluids in recovery, walk one day after surgery and eat food on day three. The article also highlights local excellence in keyhole cancer surgery (Laparoscopic surgery) for prostate, kidney and bladder cancer.
Mr Golash and Mr Luscombe have co-authored an article about assessing performance of surgeons carrying out keyhole kidney removal surgery. This article was published in the respected Journal of Endourology and describes research performed by the STILUS Academic research group.
