Partial Nephrectomy

Partial nephrectomy is a kidney surgery to remove a kidney mass of renal cell carcinoma in order to save the kidney and maintain the many lifesaving kidney functions. Statistics over the last decade show that patients that have a radical nephrectomy vs. a partial nephrectomy have increased risk of chronic kidney disease, and a significant risk factor for cardiovascular (CV) events and death. Miami urologist, Dr. Fernando Bianco, whose career has been attuned to the highest level of kidney cancer treatment, is one of the few doctors trained in performing a partial nephrectomy that removes multiple kidney tumors to save the kidney. The kidney (see “what is a kidney?”) performs many critical tasks that keep us alive. The kidney helps to regulate our red blood cell production, pH levels, fluid volume, blood pressure, and to filter water and waste products out of our blood which creates urine. One of the most important things to do when faced with renal cell carcinoma is to ask the urologist if they have been trained to perform: multiple tumor removal, large tumor removal, removal of tumors in the renal pelvis, and kidney tumors next to the renal artery.

Partial nephrectomy also called nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) is performed by urology specialists called urologists. Removing or treating a cancerous kidney mass (cancer rinon) may be performed quite differently according to the stage of the cancer, the individuals preferences, the capabilities of the medical center, the training and capability of the surgeon. Urology treatments and surgeries for renal cell carcinoma have evolved, along with diagnostic testing for kidney tumors. A partial nephrectomy can be performed as an open surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery also called da Vinci surgery. The urologic surgery for kidney cancer that is performed the most is the standard radical nephrectomy (nefrectomia) because many urology surgeons have not been trained in complex partial nephrectomy surgery, which allows for tumors near the renal arteries and renal pelvis to be removed safely, saving the kidney. Our team, of robotic partial nephrectomy surgeons, has performed thousands of complex bladder surgery, prostate surgery, and kidney surgery cases for patients from around the world.

Partial nephrectomy is replacing the radical nephrectomy (see what is a nephrectomy) as the gold standard of kidney cancer surgery.
