Robotic Prostate Cancer Diagnostics
At Buderim Prostate Clinic we offer Robotic targeted transperineal Prostatic Biopsy supported by world-class prostate MRI and PSMA scanning, along with internationally recognised uropathology services. The nature of prostate cancer varies greatly, and treatment recommendations are individualised for the patient. For some, careful ongoing observation may be enough.
Robotic Prostate Cancer Treatments
A/Prof. Troy Gianduzzo is one of Australia’s most experienced robotic prostatectomy surgeons and has been performing key-hole (laparoscopic and robotic) prostate surgery since 2004. He has completed a master’s thesis on advances in robotic prostatectomy, which included robotic instrument design and development with Intuitive Surgical the robotic manufacturing company.
OUR SPECIALISTS IN ROBOTIC PROCEDURES AND PROSTATE CANCER CARE
Dr Tony Gianduzzo is the senior Urologist on the Sunshine Coast, with a career-long interest in accurate prostate cancer diagnostics and risk-classification. He has been a very early advocate of active surveillance strategies for low-risk prostate cancer since the mid-1990’s. He is closely involved in the emerging technologies of prostate MRI, and especially robotic-assisted transperineal prostatic fusion biopsy. This is highly accurate in finding important prostate cancers needing treatment, while avoiding over-diagnosing and potentially over-treating insignificant disease.
A/Prof Gianduzzo is a recognised leader in prostate surgery and is internationally accredited as a Surgeon of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by the U.S. based Surgical Review Corporation. He is an experienced keyhole surgeon, having performed over 1,000 major robotic +/- laparoscopic urological procedures. He is also the national secretary of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Urological Surgeons. A/Prof Gianduzzo’s main area of interest is prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment including robotic prostate surgery.

About Robotic-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy
Robotic systems are becoming increasingly popular in the medical fraternity owing to unique advantages including precision, safety and many others.
The da Vinci® robotic surgical system is one of the most popular and widely employed robotic systems in the field of medicine and is used to perform surgical procedures in urology, general surgery and other specialties of medicine.
Associate Professor Troy Gianduzzo is one of Australia’s most experienced robotic prostatectomy surgeons and has been performing key-hole (laparoscopic and robotic) prostate surgery since 2004. He has completed a master’s thesis on advances in robotic prostatectomy, which included robotic instrument design and development with Intuitive Surgical (www.intuitivesurgical.com) the robotic manufacturing company.
His experience is now approaching 1000 laparoscopic and robotic procedures, and he is the first fellowship-trained Urologist in Queensland to perform key-hole prostatectomy following dedicated international training.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride
On Sunday September 30th 2018, over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in over 650 cities worldwide will don their cravats, tustle their ties, press their tweed, and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men’s mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.
That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event encouraged the founder to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause.
