Personal profile


A/Prof Daniel Moon is a urologist with particular expertise in laparoscopic and robotic surgery, the management of prostate cancer and the aftermath of its treatment.  He was the Director of Robotic Surgery at Epworth Healthcare 2012-2017 and is an Associate Professor at The University of Melbourne.   He has performed over 2000 major laparoscopic +/- robotic procedures, published the first Australian series of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy in 2008, performed the first Australian robotic cysto-prostatectomy in 2009, published the largest Australian pyeloplasty series in 2011, and established a robotic partial nephrectomy program at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, publishing the first Australian series of this procedure in 2014, then the largest Australian partial nephrectomy series in 2018.

A/Prof Moon convened the biennial National Kidney and Bladder Cancer Symposium, co-convened Australia’s first robotic prostatectomy surgical masterclass in 2011, followed by the first robotic partial nephrectomy masterclass in 2012 then the first Australian multi-disciplinary robotic surgical symposium in 2013.  A/Prof Moon developed comprehensive training and credentialing documents for surgeons learning robotic surgery, is involved in fellowship training in robotics and is on the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Urology International.

A/Prof Moon has also developed a high volume urological prosthetics practice, restoring continence and potency in men following prostate cancer treatment.  After co-authoring the first multicentre Australian series of suburethral male slings then presenting the largest local series of suburethral slings and artificial urinary sphincters at the Urological Society’s Annual Scientific Meeting in 2012, he published the largest Australian series of artificial urinary sphincter insertion in 2014, then in 2017 published the longest Australian follow-up for men undergoing urethral sling surgery followed by the largest Australian experience in penile implant surgery for erectile dysfunction.
