The proper treatment sequencing and the introduction of therapies to enhance patient immunity are key factors for treatment.
Nephrectomy / radical nephroureterectomy
Surgical procedure by which the kidney and / or the ureter is removed and the surrounding lymph nodes. This procedure can be carried out by robotic or laparoscopic approach.
It is the gold standard technique as long as the size and characteristics of the tumor allow it. It consists of removal of part of the kidney where the tumor is located, conserving healthy kidney tissue.
This surgery can be performed using robotic or laparoscopic technology. The advantages of using the Da Vinci robot are based on the minimally invasive approach thru the key holes. Robot reproduces surgeon movements and improves its accuracy. Due to this technology, incisions are smaller, blood loss is minimized, faster recovery with less pain and shorter hospital stay.
