Erectile nerve sparing Prostatectomy
A nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy is ultimately designed to preserve a man's sexual function. The success rate in preserving sexual potency is dependent on a few factors - a man's age, the quality of his erection prior to the surgery, and the surgeon's skill and experience in protecting and preserving the nerves during the Prostate nerve-sparing operation.
Dr Elmes’ fellowship in one of Sydney’s largest teaching hospitals was the first in NSW with robotic training. He has furthered his robotic training in both prostate and kidney surgery in Hong Kong and under the tutelage of some of the Australia’s most advanced and technically adept robotic surgeons.
Dr Elmes’ goal is returning a man to the way he was before the operation, cancer free, continent and potent. Experience is a key factor in the success of nerve sparing and Dr Elmes offers this specialised option for patients with confidence delivering successful outcomes for his patients.
