• da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy

    If your doctor recommends surgery for a kidney disease such as kidney cancer, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive, kidney-sparing surgery. Depending on your disease state and tumor location, you may not have to lose your entire kidney to surgery. A surgical technique called partial nephrectomy removes only the diseased part of your kidney while sparing the healthy, functioning kidney tissue.

    The incidence of kidney cancer in the United States is rising, 58,000 new cases every year. Dr. Nicholas Hellenthal talks about why robot-assisted surgery to remove cancerous kidney tumors is better for patients.
