Robotic Partial / Radical Nephrectomy

Robotic Surgery For Kidney Tumor Removal

KIDNEY SURGERY

Most of the Robotic Surgery for kidney tumor removal has the same results as open surgery and result in faster healing time and comparatively less pain. We utilize robotic assisted-surgery for kidney tumor removal that helps to effectively perform partial nephrectomy for even the most complex tumors with tumors located deep inside the kidney and tumors next to crucial vessels that bring blood to the kidney. Dr Anant kumar and Department of Urology at Max Hospital are well prepared and skilled to do Robotic Surgeries.

PARTIAL NEPHRECTOMY

Some of kidneys tumors, masses or complex cysts can be dealt with a method know as Partial Nephrectomy, which is the surgical evacuation of the cancerous area of the kidney. In this method, a very little part of the normal kidney is expelled with the tumor and the large part of healthy kidney tissue is saved and surgically repaired so that blood and pee can flow easily. This is called "nephron- sparing" or "kidney- sparing surgery."

BENEFITS OF ROBOTIC ASSISTED PARTIAL NEPHRECTOMY

Robotic-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy permits the deletion and reproduction of the kidney to be performed through different keyhole-sized entry points, rather than a single open cut measuring a few inches over the side of the abdomen. This big entry point with open surgery normally is painful and may need partial removal of a rib. Even though laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy can also be performed by utilizing little cuts, it can be technically difficult - so these techniques are frequently changed over to a total Nephrectomy.

Amid the robotic method, urologist may for the moment stop blood flow to the influenced kidney before removing the cancerous part. The magnified view of the kidney and the perfect situating of the surgical instruments permit the specialist to work with awesome accuracy and control while removing the kidney tumor, preventing bleeding, and after that repairing the sensitive vessels and tissues of the working kidney which is left behind. The tumor is expelled from the body (subsequent to be placed in a little plastic pack) through one of the keyhole entry points. In few cases, close-by lymph nodes will also be expelled and inspected (lymph node dissection) as a part of the nephrectomy or partial nephrectomy. As with most robotic-assisted methods, there is normally less pain than with the open method, less blood loss (and so less requirement for a blood transfusion), less scarring (both inside and bagged inside the body) and after that it is removed by making bigger keyhole cuts.

ADVANTAGES OF APARTIAL NEPHRECTOMY

A reproduced kidney offers two main advantages: it might diminish the danger of long term kidney breakdown, furthermore acts as a reserve if the other kidney is harmed. Keeping as much as fit kidney tissue as could possible may help you maintain a strategic distance from the requirement for dialysis in coming years, particularly if you have previous high blood pressure and diabetes. Numerous studies demonstrate that cancer survival rates in patients having partial nephrectomy are identical to those seen in patients having radical nephrectomy; though, the patients having the kidney- sparing method additionally benefit by numerous other long-term health benefits and enhanced overall survival.

ROBOTIC-ASSISTED RADICAL NEPHRECTOMY:

In situations where the kidney tumor is too big or complex to save the kidney, or in situations when the kidney functions no more, advices are ‘complete elimination of the kidney’. (Note that deletion of simply part of the kidney is for all time favored, and we might have the capacity to perform fractional nephrectomy even in patients with complex tumors who have been told by others that they require Radical Nephrectomy. The whole Robotic Surgery for kidney tumor removal is performed through little keyhole-sized entry points, instead of a vast open cut on the side of the abdomen—a cut that is painful and needs partial elimination of a rib. The abdomen is initially expanded with air (carbon dioxide) to make available the specialist with enough space to move the colon away from the kidney. The specialist recognizes and cuts off the veins driving into the kidney with the goal that blood flow is permanently stopped. The kidney is then surgically expelled from the bowels, liver, spleen, pancreas, and/or back muscles. Most of the time, the adrenal gland is saved. When free, the kidney is especially bagged inside the body and afterward expelled by enlarging one of the keyhole entry points.

ADVANTAGES OF ROBOTIC ASSISTED RADICAL NEPHRECTOMY

Similarly as with most robotic-assisted methods, there is normally significantly less pain than with the open methodology, less blood loss (and in this way less requirement for a blood transfusion), less scarring (both inside and externally), a shorter hospital stay (3-4 days versus up to a week), and shorter healing time before an arrival to ordinary activities. That is why Robotic Surgery for kidney tumor removal is preferred these days.
