A surgeon’s positive surgical margin rate in patients undergoing surgical treatment for prostate cancer, is considered one of the best ways to assess both a urological surgeon’s technical ability and the likelihood of cure in patients they treat. Dr Nash has just completed an independent audit of his results for patients undergoing Radical Prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer for the years 2014 – 2018 inclusive.
