When one loses one kidney due to kidney cancer, there is a high possibility the patient may require life long dialysis or a kidney transplant. Today new techniques and technology can prevent this debilitating consequence of renal cancer.
With the evolution of robotic technology for surgery, robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy has evolved as a technique that offers similar oncological outcomes to laparoscopic and open techniques. However, with the added advantage of improved maneuverability and precision, it dramatically reduces renal ischemia times and therefore improves postoperative renal function.
