At CMC Dubai we are equipped with the latest robotic surgical system should an operation be the best course of treatment. Your treatment plan will be custom to your needs and may use conservative or surgical means.
Our highly skilled kidney cancer surgeons use minimally invasive preservation approaches to kidney surgery. This means we are removing the tumor while preservation normal kidney function. Specifically we offer two advanced robotic surgery options including:
Robotic Radical Nephrectomy – In the case of large or advanced kidney cancers, we remove the whole affected kidney and surrounding tissues and structures such as the lymph nodes and adrenal gland This technique is used in the case of advance or too big kidney cancer.
Robotic Partial Nephrectomy – If the kidney cancer is considered small, our surgeon will remove only the tumor and a small margin of healthy tissue around it.
If the cancer is considered inoperable or too advanced, you may be recommended alternative treatment options.
