Robotic Partial Nephrectomy
Becoming the gold standard when treating kidney cancer, the robotic partial nephrectomy has unsurpassed benefits that both surgeon and patient can appreciate. The da Vinci® robot allows surgeons to operate in a laparoscopic environment by using only five small incisions. Through these incisions the surgeon is able to visualize the surgical field in 3-dimensional view. With this enhanced visualization the surgeon is able to precisely remove part of the kidney and tumor without damaging surrounding organs and tissues.
Other Benefits of Robotic Partial Nephrectomy may include:
- Shorter hospitalization
- Reduced risk of infection
- Minimal scarring
- Less pain
- Faster return to normal activity
- Less blood loss
