Members of the public, former patients, prospective patients, staff and GPs all attended the event to try their hand at robotic surgery. Here, urology fellow Ramesh Thurairaja peels a grape. Southmead Hospital was among the first in the country to have a surgical robot for urology. Since 2009 our Da Vinci robot has carried out more than 450 prostate cancer removals.
