Dr. Carl Wijburg, MD


Carl Wijburg studied Medicine at University of Utrecht (NL). During his medical studies his father died of prostate cancer. Therefore he was very motivated to do research into prostate cancer and he worked on the ERSPC project of Prof Schröder in Rotterdam. During his residency he learned open radical prostatectomy and the first steps of robot assisted radical prostatectomy on the first daVinci surgical system. In 2007 he followed a training in robotic surgery with Prof. Dr. Alex Mottrie in Aalst (B). Since 2008 he works as a urologist in Rijnstate Hospital, Arnhem, the Netherlands. He and his team have performed more than 1,000 radical prostatectomies with the daVinci Si and Xi. Carl now trains residents and urologists in RARP and intracorporeal robot assisted radical cystectomy (iRARC). He’s an international proctor for Intuitive Surgical. In 2015 he started a National study RARC versus ORC in the Netherlands (
