A high-volume, private London prostate cancer clinic dedicated to achieving world-class results for robotic prostatectomy
Conducting nearly 250 operations per year, Santis is one of the highest volume private prostatectomy practices in the UK. Our patient outcomes are among the best in the world as a result of decades of experience in treating nearly 4,000 men, training under world leaders, and our focused approach on delivering the best patient outcomes.Meet the team
Robotic prostatectomy at Santis
Why choose Santis?
- An expertise that is unrivalled in the UK of almost 4,000 cases of radical prostatectomy over 24 years
- A surgical team that has worked together for the past 10 years
- The use of the novel Retzius-sparing approach in suitable patients, which improves early post-operation continence three-fold
- The use of intra-operative pathology (NeuroSAFE) in all patients, which allows both functional results and cancer control to be maximised by analysing the prostate tissue in real-time and preserving nerves where possible
- Patient outcomes that have been regularly collected and published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences over the last 20 years
- All patients have their imaging and treatment plan reviewed at a multidisciplinary (Urology, Oncology, Pathology, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine) meeting of at least 10 other highly-experienced consultants before treatment begins, providing oversight and validation of their treatment plan by a panel of experts.
The ability, volume and experience of your surgeon is the most important factor in achieving a successful result in terms of cancer survival, potency and continence.
Our collected patient data not only proves that experience is critical, but also that the specific techniques used by us lead to better results for patients. In recognition of our achievements, in 2018 the Daily Mail’s guide to the top 10 prostate cancer surgeons in Britain featured Professor Christopher Eden for his experience and exceptional patient results, as voted by his peers.
That’s why we believe Santis is the best choice for patients.

What our patients say
Mr. Gareth Ottey
“Following a final diagnosis of Gleason 3+4 adenocarcinoma, the decision of what to do was an easy one – have a prostatectomy to remove the cancer. Specifically, have it removed ‘robotically assisted’.
Professor Christopher Eden was recommended to me by my urologist to perform such an operation – a calming, reassuring man who fully explained how he and his team were going to perform the prostatectomy. The operation at Guy’s Cancer Centre in February 2020 was a success. Prostate removed, no nerve damage, so I’m potent and continent, which is fantastic. Just had my PSA blood results in April 2020 which recorded levels less than 0.05 [virtually undetectable] – hallelujah!
Professor Eden and his team have been incredibly supportive and patient with me post-operatively too – reassuring me throughout my recovery. Thank you.”
Mr. Rachid Noui
“Being a rugby player I have had numerous injuries over the years that have required surgery, and I can honestly say that my experience of the care I have received from Professor Eden has been the best I have ever had. He was kind and took his time to answer all my questions honestly and in a straightforward manner, and when it came to the day of the surgery itself I was completely confident that I was in the best hands possible.
He phoned my wife straight after the surgery, which was greatly appreciated, and even after discharge from hospital he followed up to check on me after a query I made to the hospital. Professor Eden is a world-class surgeon and has a world-class team working with him, and I am extremely grateful to him. Upon removal of the catheter I was immediately fully continent, have recovered all nerve function and everything is well on its way to returning back to normal.
I even went skiing only 4 weeks after the operation (see photo!).
