Facing Kidney Surgery

Finding out you have a serious kidney problem may be one of the hardest things you’ve faced. That’s why it’s important to learn about your options before choosing the best path forward.

Know Your Options

If your doctor suggests surgery for a kidney disease or kidney cancer, it can be done using open surgery through one large incision (cut) or using minimally invasive surgery – through a few small incisions – with traditional laparoscopy or da Vinci Surgery.

Depending on your condition and the location of your tumor, you may not have to lose your entire kidney during surgery. This surgical method is called partial nephrectomy or kidney-sparing surgery. The goal is to take out only the diseased part of your kidney and keep the healthy part in place.

da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy offers the following potential benefits to patients:

  • Excellent clinical outcomes and cancer control
  • Precise tumor removal and kidney reconstruction
  • Excellent chance of preserving the kidney, where indicated
  • Low rate of operative complications
  • Shorter hospital stay

da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy offers the following potential benefits compared to open surgery:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
