    Mount Elizabeth, Kidney Sparing Surgery for Early Kidney Cancers

    Due to advances in abdomical imaging diagnostic techniques, kidney cancers are being diagnosed earlier. We always aim to provide conclusive diagnosis at our hospitals, in hope that you might be able to avoid have your entire kidney removed.

    Our specialists recommend kidney sparing surgery, or partial nephrectomy, as the preferred surgery of choice. It aims to preserve your healthy kidney tissue while only removing the tumour.

    The most critical part of this surgery is the cutting away (excision) of the tumour followed by the repair and reconstruction of the nephrons and muscles that are affected by the removal process.

    Our experienced surgeons do this to prevent kidney damage from lack of oxygen and blood supply to the kidney. While this is a challenge with conventional laparoscopic nephrectomy and its straight laparoscopic instruments, the articulated EndoWrist intruments from the da Vinci® system enable your surgeon to complete the complex procedure more quickly and efficiently.

    Your specialist will likely recommend you for kidney sparing surgery if you suffer from early-stage kidney cancer.

  • Some of the advantages you will experience with our robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy over conventional laparoscopic surgery include:

    • Better clinical outcomes and cancer control, which helps prevent potential kidney disease in the future.
    • A shorter hospital stay.
    • Effective tumour removal and kidney reconstruction.
    • Better chance of preserving the remaining healthy kidney, which reduces the need for dialysis.
    • Less blood loss and reduced risk of operative complications.
  • Our skilled team of specialists and staff operate at Mount Elizabeth Orchard and Mount Elizabeth Novena – both award-winning hospitals with modern technology and facilities.
