Screening & Tests
Breast screening when performed regularly is a proven way to detect early breast cancer. Early detection increases the potential of a successful treatment and recovery. At St Vincent’s Northside Breast Health Centre, we specialise in routine breast screening, diagnostic assessment for all diseases of the breast and consultation services. We employ the triple test approach to breast screening to maximise the accuracy of detection. Our approach combines physical breast examination, breast imaging and biopsy (if required).

Patients who come to us for treatment of urological cancers will benefit from a less invasive surgical technique available to our surgeons. Robotic systems support our Urologists when performing certain surgical procedures, improving surgical vision, access and control. Our Urologists are highly skilled in performing Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomies. A Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy (RALP) is the surgical removal of the prostate gland with the aid of a robotic surgical system. Please contact us for more information.
Benefits of Robotic Assisted Surgery:
- Reduced operation times
- Shorter hospital stays
- Fewer complications
- Less need for pain medicine
- Faster recovery times
- Minimal scarring
