With the rapid proliferation of medical knowledge and constant advances in technology, surgical specialties such as urology have become more sub-specialised, so that urologists may have in-depth knowledge and skills in a particular area, as well as proficiency in general urology.

As a group, AUA urologists offer expertise across the broad spectrum of urological conditions and treatments, from sub-specialty areas such as prostate cancer and female incontinence, to general urology such as treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlargement) and vasectomy.

In addition to a high standard of clinical care, AUA urologists are committed to education as well as laboratory and clinical research. This work is carried out in both the private and public health systems, as each urologist also holds a position at one or more of the large teaching hospitals in metropolitan Melbourne.

Surgical removal is often the best treatment for many urological cancers. There is usually a variety of techniques available to perform this surgery, such as via an open approach or with laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, with or without robotic assistance.

However, sometimes open surgery is the only appropriate option. This is usually the case if the tumour has spread to adjacent organs, or if complex reconstruction is required. Examples include very large kidney cancers with local spread into large veins, bladder removal with construction of a new bladder using the patient’s bowel, or testis cancer that has spread to lymph nodes in the abdomen.

AUA urologists are highly experienced in complex open cancer surgery.
