If your doctor recommends surgery for a kidney condition, you may be a candidate for a new, minimally invasive approach-daVinci surgery. DaVinci surgery uses state-of-the-art technology to help your doctor perform a more precise operation than conventional instrumentation allows.
DaVinci 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 daVinci Surgical System's advanced instrumentation facilitates a minimally invasive approach for treating kidney disorders and kidney cancer. (In da Vinci nephrectomy, one incision is enlarged for removal of the kidney.)
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient- and procedure-specific.
