ROBOCAP is the charity that has already provided £350,000 to assist the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in successfully bringing  “Robotics Assisted Surgery” to the Three Shires of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and  Worcestershire

Robocap’s ongoing focus is to provide diagnostic equipment and training which will allow Urologists to assess what particular treatment may be appropriate for their patients throughout the Three Shires.

Over 35,000 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer every year in England and Wales,  800+ of these are in the Three Shires of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and South Worcestershire.  Almost everyone knows someone who has died from, or is suffering from Prostate Cancer.

Robotic Assisted surgery

There are different forms of treatment for Prostate cancer, the most up to date and advanced being “Robotic Assisted Surgery”.  This state-of-the-art form of keyhole surgery offers surgeons superior 3D High Definition imaging and magnification, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort for the optimal performance of minimally invasive surgery.  This means less pain after the operation with minimal blood loss, quicker recovery after surgery and reduced incidence of complications. More than 100 procedures have been successfully completed since the installation of the new DaVinci Robot at Cheltenham.
