Da Vinci Surgery for Kidney Conditions

If your doc­tor rec­om­mends surgery for a kid­ney con­di­tion, you may be a can­di­date for a new, min­i­mal­ly inva­sive approach — da Vin­ci Surgery. da Vin­ci Surgery uses state-of-the-art tech­nol­o­gy to help your doc­tor per­form a more pre­cise oper­a­tion than con­ven­tion­al instru­men­ta­tion allows. It offers numer­ous poten­tial ben­e­fits over a con­ven­tion­al open surgery, including: 

Sig­nif­i­cant­ly less pain 

Less blood loss

Few­er transfusions

Less risk of infection

Less scar­ring

Short­er hos­pi­tal stay

Short­er recov­ery time

Increased poten­tial for kid­ney preser­va­tion in cer­tain pre­scribed can­cer operations

Bet­ter clin­i­cal out­comes, in many cas­es da Vin­ci Surgery for kid­ney con­di­tions incor­po­rates the best tech­niques of open surgery and applies them to a robot­ic-assist­ed, min­i­mal­ly inva­sive approach. The pre­ci­sion and dex­ter­i­ty afford­ed by the da Vin­ci Sur­gi­cal System’s advanced instru­men­ta­tion facil­i­tates a min­i­mal­ly inva­sive approach for treat­ing kid­ney dis­or­ders and kid­ney can­cer. As with any surgery, these ben­e­fits can­not be guar­an­teed, as surgery is patient and pro­ce­dure spe­cif­ic. If you are a can­di­date for kid­ney surgery, talk to a urol­o­gist who per­forms da Vin­ci kid­ney procedures.

In Nephrec­to­my, one inci­sion is enlarged for removal of the kid­ney. While clin­i­cal stud­ies sup­port the effec­tive­ness of the da Vin­ci® Sys­tem when used in min­i­mal­ly inva­sive surgery, indi­vid­ual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vin­ci® Sur­gi­cal Sys­tem may not be appro­pri­ate for every indi­vid­ual. Always ask your doc­tor about all treat­ment options, as well as their risks and ben­e­fits.
