Robotic surgery is an advanced, high-tech laparoscopic procedure that offers many advantages over traditional surgery, says Dr. Bevan-Thomas. He specializes in performing the robotic prostatectomy, a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing the prostate gland using the da Vinci surgical robotic system.
In 2002, Dr. Bevan-Thomas was one of the first physicians to perform robotic surgery when the technique was introduced in the U.S. At the time, he was in private practice in San Ramon, California, and served as chief of surgery at San Ramon Medical Center in California. He was recruited to USMD Prostate Cancer Center in 2007.
Additionally, Dr. Bevan-Thomas is a member of the USMD Prostate Cancer Center Cryosurgery team. Cryosurgery incorporates the use of slim probes known as ‘cryoprobes’ that periodically deliver cycles of extremely cold and warm temperatures to freeze repeatedly and thaw cancerous cells within and surrounding the prostate gland– ultimately destroying the cancerous cells.
A graduate of Duke University, Dr. Bevan-Thomas received both a master’ s degree in anatomy and his medical degree from St. Louis University School of Medicine. He completed residency training in urologic surgery at the University of Texas-Houston Health Science Center and the renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center, also in Houston. In 2002, he received two top honors in his field; the Pfizer Scholar in Urology and the Gerald G. Murphy Scholar in Urology.
Dr. Bevan-Thomas will remain on the leading edge of robotic surgery and cryosurgery at USMDProstate Cancer Center and will continue offering patients the latest clinical trials in prostate cancer treatment. He continues his teaching and physician proctoring interests as well as instructing in robotic surgery.
Dr. Bevan-Thomas resides in Southlake with his wife and three children.
