Dr Pras Sivam (Prassannah Satasivam) is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and a Member of the Society of Urologic Oncology. He is an accomplished general urologist with subspecialty expertise in robotic and open surgery for urological cancers.
Dr Pras obtained his degrees in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Melbourne. After completing his surgical training in Victoria he was awarded a prestigious Fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Here he received formal training in robotic surgery and exposure to a high volume of complex surgical cases.
His proficiencies include robotic prostatectomy with lymph node dissection, MRI-guided prostate biopsy, open and robotic kidney surgery, and major surgery for bladder and testis cancer.
At Precision Urology we aim to provide the highest quality care for our patients. In addition to treating all general urology conditions, we offer unrivalled expertise in robotic and open surgery for cancers of the prostate, kidney, bladder and testis.
AUSTRALIAN PROSTATE CENTRE – BULK-BILLED UROLOGY CLINIC
Dr Pras is temporarily increasing his presence at the Australian Prostate Centre to meet increasing demand. This bulk-billed urology clinic in North Mebourne is affiliated with the Royal Melbourne Hospital and allows the rapid management of patients irrespective of their insurance status.
Appointments need to be made directly with the Centre on (03) 8373 7600 and patients must have a referral from their GP specifically addressed to Dr Pras Sivam.
UROLIFT FOR BENIGN PROSTATIC ENLARGEMENT
The UroLift System is a new, minimally invasive approach to treating BPH for patients looking for an alternative to drug therapy or more invasive surgery. The system utilises tiny implants to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue. Most patients go home the same day with rapid symptom relief. The main benefit of this procedure is preservation of ejaculation, which is often lost after TURP and medical therapy.
NOW OFFERING PROSTATIC ARTERY EMBOLISATION
We are proud to announce our partnership with Dr Cosmin Florescu, Interventional Radiologist and member of the European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR). Cosmin graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2004 and undertook Fellowship training in Radiology through Monash Health. He currently holds public appointments as an Interventional Radiologist at both St. Vincent’s Hospital and Monash Health.
In addition to the innovative approach of arterial embolisation for benign prostatic enlargement, Cosmin offers a variety of radiological procedures including varicocele embolisation, nephrostomy tube management, radiofrequency ablation and renal mass biopsy.
