With over 10 years of experience in da Vinci robotic surgery and almost 1500 cases as primary surgeon and proctor to urologists and trainees, Dr Kua is now one of the most experienced da Vinci robotic surgeons in the country. Dr Kua teaches Bond University medical students and helped establish Wesley Private Hospital’s urology multi disciplinary team meeting in which he regularly attends to discuss complex urologic oncology cases. He has published multiple articles in peer-reviewed journals from collaboration with his peers.
Dr Kua is highly experienced in treating:
