Dr. Kenneth Vaux's Ratings
Underwent endoscopic prostatectomy in 2005. At the time, I was 59, in excellent health, on no medication. Dr Vaux was quite clear that, aside from complications, the procedure (sort of boring through the enlarged prostate) should last a lifetime. I have known many men who have had the op, now in their 70's and 80's, and this seems to be true, as well as causing them no or little pain beyond a few days. Not for me -- bloody painful peeing for weeks after, can't pee straight, sprays everywhere -- have to sit -- embarrassing. Now, it has to be done again, as I pee slower than before the op. Maybe it's not the surgeon's fault, but with my experience, and his rating, I certainly won't be going back.

no attention to detail. no examination to assess real prostate condition. 5 minutes consult . waste of time and money

I was placed in his care in RNS and after 2 operation have sought another urologist. Vaux did not pay attention to what was happening, fell asleep during one consultation when I had traveled to his rooms from Tuggerah. One overnight op turned into 4 weeks hospitalization. Would never recommend him.

Not the most pleasant of characters but surgical outcome was good. Was not impressed to overhear him badmouth staff while waiting for surgery.

Excellent consultation. Speedy organisation of urodynamic testing and surgery. Recommended to me by urodynamic clinical nurse consultant - she would know who was the best

Staff inpatient with my father who understands English well but not able to express himself vey well. English is not his first language. As his eldest daughter, I came with him and was disappointed in this attitude. Doctor did not seem to ask many questions. Staff did not make us feel comfortable about going back.

Seemed to be in a hurry to complete the consultation. Seems to have good sense of humour.
