Nephrectomy


If you have been diagnosed with a kidney condition such as kidney cancer your surgeon may recommend a radical nephrectomy procedure. During a nephrectomy your surgeon will remove your entire kidney.

A nephrectomy procedure performed with the daVinci Surgical System compared to traditional, open surgery or laparoscopic surgery, offers numerous possible benefits including:
  • less pain
  • less scarring
  • lower risk of long-term complications
  • less blood loss and need for transfusion during surgery
  • lower risk of wound infection
  • shorter hospital stay
  • faster return to normal daily activities
  • increased likelihood of kidney preservation

Dr. Saleem Zafar talks about a total Nephrectomy.
