The precision, vision and control of the da Vinci Surgical System allows your surgeon to provide a precise, minimally invasive treatment for kidney cancer. It may also provide your surgeon the means to preserve your kidney by removing the tumor and not the entire kidney. Preserving your kidney can help prevent future kidney disease and even dialysis.

Potential patient benefits:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery time
  • Increased potential to preserve the kidney
  • Better clinical outcomes, in many cases
