Robotic surgery (da Vinci® Surgical System)

Robotic surgery (da Vinci® Surgical System) for kidney cancer

The da Vinci Surgical System may be a better option for kidney cancer patients who are candidates for surgery, as it offers a minimally invasive alternative to a radical nephrectomy. Your surgeon may use Firefly™ Fluorescence Imaging to identify blood vessels and other critical structures in the kidney before performing a partial nephrectomy. Using this imaging system aids your surgeon in the dissection and clamping of vascular structures. Surgery using the da Vinci System may result in fewer side effects.
