Dr. T.B. Yuvaraja: Cancer Kidney- Robotic Partial Nephrectomy

Mrs. XYZ, a 52 years old female suffering from chronic kidney disease for a long time was found to have tumour in her kidney. She was advised removal of the tumour bearing kidney which put her into the risk of permanent dialysis in the future by open surgery. The outcome of the surgery with respect to permanent dialysis shocked her and went into depression. After multiple consultations she came to us where she underwent thorough evaluation. We advised her to undergo robotic partial nephrectomy which can save the kidney with minimal pain and scarring by robotic method. She underwent surgery in a minimally invasive way using the robot where only the tumour was removed saving the remaining kidney. She recovered well with no risk of future dialysis. After one year of surgery she is healthy with stable kidney function and enjoying an active life.
