Transperineal Prostate Biopsy
What does the procedure involve?
This procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and involves using an ultrasound probe inserted via the rectum to guide the biopsy needle. Biopsies are taken through the perineal skin using a special grid. The number of samples taken depends on the size of the prostate, usually ranging from 12 to 24 samples.
Dr Kenny Low is now qualified in the most advanced medical technology for prostate and kidney cancer, the da Vinci Surgical System which is now available at John Flynn Private Hospital, Tugun.
The da Vinci Surgical System replicates open surgery with precision and accuracy using robotic assisted minimally invasive technology.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website. After many months of hard work and dedication, it is officially here.
Our goal with this new website is to provide our patients with an easier way to learn about North Coast Urology’s services. We would like to also allow you, the patient, to browse information based on your Urology consultation.
The new website is interactive and gives you better access to information about our Urology Clinic, with many drop down menus about urological conditions.
