Hi Chris, you may have to give Chris Eden a reminder to look at the site as he only came on here a while ago after I asked him too. Try this address, Hopefully he will look at your question then.

All the best

Would be very interested in how much he charges for prostate removal, they would not disclose this without consultation when I asked. I know Arnon said its about $36000, £18000 in US so would be an interesting comparison. If I ever make the decision to have my prostate removed this could be an important factor. It might be cheaper in the states even with hotel & airfare. Of course if there were any complications it would be best to be at home I guess as NHS could sort out complications without further expense. When you think of the money Song was charging to screw people up, it still sounds like good value to me to be rid of the problem once and for all..!!!

The difficulty with NHS operating lists is that the next generation of urologists has to be trained somehow and this is the only environment in which they can be trained. It is therefore impossible for me to guarantee to NHS patients, even fellow doctors, that I will do all of their operation, although I do guarantee that I will at the very least assist in the case and supervise all of it. If I stopped training or reduced training for my trainees I would stop getting them, which I am understandably keen to avoid as I see training as a key component of what I do. If a patient particularly wanted me to do all of their operation, I could only do this if he were a private patient. The fixed price cost of an LRP is just over £11,000.

I did my 6th LRP for intractable prostatitis 6 days ago (99 minute op. time, 30 ml blood loss and 48 hour post-op. stay) so it's too early to gauge success in terms of pain relief.
