For patients diagnosed with a small (i.e., < 4 cm) kidney tumor, laparoscopic partial nephrectomy provides patients with a safe and minimally invasive technique for removal of the tumor, while preserving the remainder of the healthy kidney. By removing only the tumor and not the entire kidney, patients have a significantly lower risk of kidney failure down the road. These minimally invasive approaches have the advantages of:-
– Improved cosmesis
– Reduced pain
– Fewer complications
– Less hospital stay, as compared to conventional open surgery with similar cure rates. In select patients with larger tumors, partial nephrectomy may not be feasible and therefore radical (i.e. complete) nephrectomy may be required.
