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.
