Fortunately, this surgery can now be performed robotically. Robotic partial nephrectomy, using the da Vinci® Surgical System, enables your doctor to perform a minimally invasive surgery with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. The da Vinci Surgical System uses state-of-the-art technology to help your doctor provide several potential benefits to patients facing kidney surgery, including:

  • Excellent clinical outcomes and cancer control
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Precise tumor removal and kidney reconstruction
  • Excellent chance of preserving the kidney, in certain operations
  • Low rate of operative complications

If your doctor is able to preserve your healthy, functioning kidney tissue, this can help to prevent future kidney disease and even dialysis.
