Personal Statement

Professor Stricker is a urologist and one of the leading experts in the management and treatment of prostate cancer in Australasia. He is the Director of the St Vincent’s Prostate Cancer Centre, Chairman of the Department of Urology at St Vincent’s Private Hospital and Clinic and the Clinical Director of the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre in New South Wales (NSW). He is also a professor and associate professor at numerous recognised Institutions, University of Western Sydney, University of Tasmania, University of NSW and University of Sydney.

His clinical practice is dedicated to the management and treatment of prostate cancer focusing on personalised care. This includes initial consultation, therapy and follow–up of all post treatment side effects including erectile dysfunction and incontinence. In 2006, he commenced the first robotic program using the latest technology (Da Vinci Si) in NSW at St Vincent’s Hospital. He has since performed over 6,500 radical prostatectomy cases, the largest Australasian series; more than 2,000 of which have been performed using the robotic–assisted radio guided surgery. He also has extensive experience in performing high–dose rate brachytherapy (over 1000 cases), low–dose rate brachytherapy (over 1000 cases), designing and managing structured active surveillance programs and transperineal biopsies (over 7000 cases).

He has been one of the Australian pioneers in multiparametric MRI and PSMA–PET scan imaging and introduction of focal therapy using irreversible electroporation–IRE (Nano–Knife) to treat prostate cancer and has performed over 300 cases. He has substantial experience in dealing with impotence and incontinence assessments, urodynamics and treatments including penile prosthesis, sling surgery and artificial urinary sphincter surgery.

Professor Stricker’s area of research focuses on the collection of quality of life data following treatment in order to refine surgical techniques, development and assessment of novel surgical techniques which are less invasive, the utilisation of medical imaging for the detection and evaluation of prostate cancer, and validation of nomograms to influence treatment decisions.

Professor Stricker was the driving force in setting up St Vincent’s Prostate Cancer Clinical Database and Tissue Bank in conjunction with the Garvan Institute, which is currently housed at The Kinghorn Cancer Centre. These resources contain extensive clinical and pathological outcome data and have resulted in a comprehensive scientific and clinical resource that has been acknowledged both nationally and internationally.

Professor Stricker is a Member of the Australian Cancer Network working party that developed guidelines for the Management of Locally advanced and metastatic prostate cancer and PSA Testing. These guidelines have been published and used as evidence–based in publications supported by NH&MRC. Professor Stricker has authored over 200 peer–reviewed publications, has collaborative research partnerships within Australia and globally and has been involved with numerous successful grant funding applications.

2020

International Society of Radiologists (ISMRM) – virtual conference, Aug 2020. Keynote address on the clinical role of MRI in Prostate Cancer. The ISMRM virtual conference was attended by approximately 10,000 people worldwide.

European Annual Scientific Urology Meeting (EAU20V)– virtual conference, Jul 2020. Invited presenter to discuss the results to date of both cancer clearance of the primary tumour, recurrence rates, side effect profile and salvage surgery. Prof Stricker’s conclusion was that the intermediate results are very encouraging with a remarkably low side effect profile and Nanoknife focal therapy a strong contender for being one of the major technologies to potentially treat focal prostate cancer internationally.EAU20V was attended by almost 10,000 delegates worldwide.

The World Society of Robotic Surgery (SRS)– virtual conference, Aug 2020. Invited speaker along with other major experienced robotic surgeons from the Sloan Kettering (New York) and University College Hospital in London among others in the area of salvage robotic surgery.A video presentation involving 10,000 delegates attending worldwide.

Australian Section of the World Society of Robotic Surgeons (SRS) – virtual conference, Aug 2020. Keynote speaker presenting a talk on preserving sexual function after robotic surgery as well as the management of high–risk prostate cancer. Prof Stricker’s presentation was part of an Asia Pacific Group of Expert Robotic Surgeons asked to describe his technique of potency preservation during Robotic Prostatectomy. He also gave a keynote address on high–risk prostate cancer. During this presentation, he made particular mention of the increasing role of PSMA PET scanning and described one of his most recent projects – the DETECT trial which is using a Geiger counter to help detect cancer which has spread to microscopic nodal disease and outside of the prostate during the operation of robotic surgery.
