Nephrectomy

Fight Kidney Cancer with a Robotic Partial or Radical Nephrectomy

If you have kidney cancer or benign kidney tumors, you may be a candidate for a type of minimally invasive surgery known as robotic partial or radical nephrectomy, or the surgical removal of all or part of one or both kidneys.

How it Works

During this procedure, the surgeon fills the patient’s abdomen with gas, inserts small instruments and a camera through key hole incisions in the abdomen and removes the tumor or entire kidney through one of the incisions.

Better Visualization. Greater Precision.

The robotic surgical system lets your surgeon perform a more precise, tremorless procedure. It offers:

  • Superior tools for dissection and removal of damaged tissue or organs
  • Better visualization, which is critical when working around delicate and confined structures or removing tumors

Benefits Over Traditional Open Surgery

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Less scarring
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Quicker return to normal activities
