The Prostate Clinic is run by Professor Christopher Eden, who is recognised as an expert in prostate cancer keyhole surgery with over 2,500 patients treated and world-class, peer-reviewed & published results for continence, potency and cancer control. He is based at The Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, Surrey and at The Hampshire Clinic in Old Basing, Hampshire, UK.
“In 2000 I was the first surgeon in the UK to perform a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (keyhole surgery). Fifteen years on, I operate on 150-200 patients a year, and over my career have performed more than 2,500 laparoscopic prostatectomies. I have trained many other surgeons, written over 50 peer-reviewed papers and have lectured and operated in most continents of the world.”
“Working in a team with the same anaesthetist, Surgical Assistant and Nurse Specialist for the past 18 years I am happy to let my world-class, peer-reviewed and published results speak for me.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer doesn’t cause symptoms until it is advanced and often incurable but men often present with urinary symptoms (frequency, urgency and/or a poor stream) due to benign (non-cancerous) prostatic enlargement that co-exists with the cancer and initiates the investigations that reveal it.
Does prostate cancer always need treatment?
No. Lower grades (a marker of aggressiveness) of prostate cancer are treated by active surveillance in the first instance. This involves close monitoring and treatment only if there is evidence of tumour progression. Higher grades and stages (the extent of the tumour) are potentially lethal and mandate active treatment.
