Mr Kapil Sethi | Urologist

Education & Training

Kapil has a particular interest in robotic surgery and advanced laparoscopy, stone surgery and laser treatment of benign enlarged prostate.

Kapil undertook fellowship training at the Austin Hospital and overseas fellowships in Germany and the UK. In Hamburg, he was the first Australasian-trained fellow at the Martini Klinik, a world-famous centre performing the largest number of prostate cancer surgeries in the world (over 2500 per year). He also worked at the Asklepios Klinik, a renowned minimally invasive department, gaining experience in laser treatment of the enlarged prostate and keyhole kidney stone surgery. As a urologist, Kapil then did a further robotic fellowship at the highly regarded Stepping Hill Hospital in Manchester.
