The Centre for Screening and Surgery (CSS) specialises in the screening and detection of cancer in its early stages. There is a cure rate of 90% or more for most cancers when detected early.


A biopsy is a procedure to remove a piece of tissue or sample of cells from your body so that it can be tested in a laboratory and examined for diseases. The tissue sample is typically removed with a needle while others may surgically remove a suspicious nodule or lump.

A biopsy can determine whether you have cancer or another condition.

Mammotome Biopsy

The Mammotome is a US FDA approved device for removing breast lumps. It is a keyhole surgery technique that requires only a 5mm incision under local anaesthesia. Most breast lumps can be removed in 10-15 minutes.

Unlike some biopsy methods, the whole breast lump is removed. After removal, the tissue is sent for histology. It can be done as a day-surgery and is usually covered by insurance.


Laparoscopy is a form of minimally invasive keyhole surgery that allows a surgeon access to the inside of the abdomen and pelvis without having to make large incisions. This is done with the help of a small tube that has a light source and a camera, which relays images of the inside of the abdomen or pelvis to a viewing monitor.

This form of surgery results in less pain and blood loss as well as a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery time.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery (or Da Vinci robotic surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical technique involving the use of very small tools attached to a robotic arm controlled by the surgeon via a console.

The surgeon can operate precisely and deftly within the body, thanks to the robotic arm’s ability to eliminate tremors. The robotic system also allows the surgeon to operate with a 3D view.
