At alta uro, minimally-invasive treatment of kidney tumours is one of our top priorities. In the vast majority of cases, operation is performed with the Da Vinci surgical robot. This technique allows us to operate very precisely and to remove the tumour-bearing portion of the kidney while sparing the healthy part of the kidney. This has the following advantages for our patients:
- Less pain after surgery
- Quick recovery, short hospital stay
- Long-term preservation of kidney function
- No large scars
If the tumour is very large or the tumour is very close to critical structures, it may be necessary to remove the entire kidney. In rare cases, an open kidney operation is required.
