ADJUNCT PROFESSOR PETER HEATHCOTE | MBBS (Qld), FRACS (Urol) | PAST PRESIDENT OF THE UROLOGICAL SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

I am a Urologic Surgeon with a special interest in cancer of the prostate, bladder and stone disease.

I was born and raised in Brisbane and completed my basic medical degree at the University of Queensland. After an intern year in Cairns Hospital, I then worked in Longreach for two years before starting general surgical then urology training in Townsville, then Brisbane. After completing urology speciality training, I spent further time in Cardiff, United Kingdom and in Toronto, Canada.

I am an Adjunct Professor in the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre Queensland (APCRC-Q) School of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Health at the Queensland University of Technology.

With my colleagues at Brisbane Urology Clinic, we established the first robotic prostatectomy program in Queensland after travelling to the United States for training. Our team at Greenslopes Private Hospital performs several robotic prostatectomies a week and we are now developing further uses for the robot including partial nephrectomy and other major urologic surgery.
