Prince William joins the team at The Royal Marsden

Our president, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, recently visited us at The Royal Marsden to watch one of our surgical teams perform a robotic oesophagectomy using the Da Vinci robotic surgical system.

This pioneering surgery is only available at The Royal Marsden and allows our surgeons to substantially reduce operating times for our patients. This minimally invasive approach means visible scarring is reduced and patients are able to return home quickly after their operation.

William is following in the steps of Princess Diana who was previously patron of The Royal Marsden and visited us many times
