Kidney Cancer Treatment

Kidney surgery is traditionally performed using an open approach, which requires a large abdominal incision. Another approach, conventional laparoscopy, is less invasive but limits the doctor's precision, visualization and control compared to open surgery. Da Vinci surgery for kidney cancer uses the best techniques of open surgery and applies them to a robot-assisted, minimally invasive approach.
