About Robotic Kidney Surgery

The kidneys are two small, fist sized organs located behind the abdomen on each side of the spine.

Kidney surgery is traditionally performed using an open approach, which requires a large abdominal incision. Another approach, conventional laparoscopy, is less invasive but limits the doctor's precision, visualization and control compared to open surgery.

Robotic surgery allows your surgeon to combine state-of-the-art technology and the best techniques of open surgery for a robotic-assisted minimally invasive approach. A more precise minimally invasive procedure, works to preserve as much of your healthy kidney as possible, by removing the tumor and not the entire kidney.
