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 da Vinci Surgical System uses state-of-the-art technology to help your doctor provide the gold standard treatment, where indicated, and also perform a more precise operation.
da Vinci Surgery for kidney conditions uses the tried and true techniques of open surgery and applies them to a robotic-assisted, minimally invasive approach. With the benefits of da Vinci Surgery, doctors may be able to perform a partial nephrectomy or kidney-sparing surgery (healthy, functioning kidney tissue is spared) to help minimize the onset of chronic kidney disease.
The precision and dexterity of the da Vinci Surgical System's advanced instrumentation provides for a minimally invasive approach to treating kidney disorders and kidney cancer.
