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
