Kapil Sethi is a Urologist based at St Vincent's and Western Health, Department of Surgery, University of Melbourne. He has a specialty focus in robotic and minimally invasive surgery for benign and malignant conditions of the kidney and prostate.
He has a postgraduate doctorate from the University of Melbourne for his research in kidney cancer and ischaemia, and is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
He undertook fellowship training at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne and overseas fellowships in Germany and the UK. In Hamburg, he was the first Australasian trained fellow at the Martini Clinic, a world-famous centre performing the largest number of prostate cancer surgeries in the world, over 2500 per year. He also worked at the Asklepios Clinic, a renowned minimally invasive unit gaining experience in laser enucleation of the enlarged prostate and keyhole stone surgery. Kapil then did a further robotic fellowship at the highly regarded Stepping Hill Hospital in Manchester.
Kapil was awarded the Villis Marshall prize for best scientific research by the Urological Society of ANZ and the Austin Prize in Surgery for his research that he also presented internationally. He has authored and worked as a reviewer for a number of scientific papers and is actively involved in research. He is the primary investigator of an ongoing trial for the use of a genomic urinary biomarker in the detection of urothelial carcinoma.
Kapil is a Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Melbourne over three hospital campuses and on the interview panel of the Urological Society of ANZ for training program entry. He sits on the examination panel for the MD research project (MDRP) and Graduate Diploma in Surgical Anatomy at University of Melbourne. In the wider community, Kapil is a member of several cancer strategy advisory groups.
