About Santis Health

Santis Health is a world-class group of three consultants working in close collaboration. The team, working at London Bridge Hospital and The Princess Grace Hospital, are dedicated to the treatment of prostate cancer by robotic prostatectomy (removal of the prostate gland using a robotic surgical system).

Their ground-breaking research, practice and teaching has helped thousands of men globally. They are dedicated to the mission of delivering the best possible outcomes for men with prostate cancer and to retaining their status as an exceptional and unique centre of excellence in the field of urology and prostate cancer care.

The team’s achievements are a result of decades of experience treating men with prostate cancer. Santis are transparent about their results and have published over 2,300 patient outcomes for the 300+ operations undertaken each year. 

Outcomes for Santis patients are among the best in the world with a cancer cure rate of 96.3% (PSA of less than 0.20), complete continence rate of 95.6% (pad-free) and potency rate 89.1%

Consultants with a proven track record

A group of eminent consultant surgeons

Santis’ prostate cancer surgeons are among the most experienced consultants in the world and have recently been voted by their peers as the best urologists in Britain. Santis is the only clinic where all its surgeons have made this List, a testament to their technical expertise and skill, and their pioneering treatments. London Bridge Hospital are proud to work with Professor Christopher Eden, Mr Declan Cahill  and Mr Prasanna Sooriakumaran (PS).


The most advanced equipment in these surgeons’ skilled hands

The Da Vinci® Xi robotic surgical system is the most advanced robot of its kind. It allows skilled surgeons to make the most precise movements with even greater control. The device also couples powerful cameras with 3D vision to maximise visibility during procedures. Using the Da Vinci® Xi robot means a greater likelihood of a successful outcome, preserved sexual function and faster recovery time.

Dedicated to innovation

Since the UK’s first laparoscopic (keyhole) operation for prostate cancer in 2000, undertaken by, Professor Christopher Eden, the team have been dedicated to pushing boundaries in improving care and utilising innovative techniques even further. The Retzius-sparing technique, also pioneered by Professor Eden and performed by all Santis surgeons, appears to significantly improve early continence after prostate cancer surgery. 

Global leaders in prostate cancer

Mr Sooriakumaran (PS) is a global leader in prostate cancer and specifically in robotic surgery for high-risk and advanced prostate cancer. PS is the only urologist featured in the Evening Standard’s List of London’s Most Influential People for his innovations in early continence recovery after robotic surgery. 

Robotic radical prostatectomy

Since pioneering radical prostatectomy in the UK in 2001, Santis consultants have carried out over 7,000 procedures. The team exclusively offers robotically-assisted radical prostatectomy, also known as RARP, a type of minimally invasive laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. During the procedure, the prostate is removed using five small cuts in the lower abdomen. This means clients can expect a quicker recovery time compared to traditional ‘open’ surgery. Lymph nodes are also removed in more advanced prostate cancers.

For robotic radical prostatectomy, Mr Cahill’s results are equivalent to the best-published results in the world for cancer margins, continence and potency. He operates on more than 100 patients with prostate cancer each year, ranking him among the highest volume prostate surgeons in the UK.


Santis and the wider London Bridge Hospital team

Santis surgeons work within the urology multidisciplinary team framework at London Bridge Hospital and with a wider network of specialists such as clinical and medical oncologists. Services include state-of-the art diagnostics such as screening of high-risk patients, genomic classifiers, multiparametric MRI scanning, PSMA PET CT scanning, and transperineal template prostate biopsy.
