First robotic kidney cancer surgery
This method helps patients reduce maximum pain after surgery, recover quickly, and return to daily activities faster than open surgery.
The 50-year-old male patient with a left kidney tumor, which was first operated on by K Hospital doctors by robots, helped to recover in just 3-5 days.
The patient discovered a kidney tumor a month ago during a routine physical examination.
The tumor was 6 cm in diameter, indicated for surgery, on August 18.
“The patient was diagnosed with kidney cancer but was fortunate to detect the disease very early in stage I,” he said.
Medical experts, deputy director of the hospital, added that it is a positive signal that many people have formed the habit of actively caring about health.
Early cancer screening makes the treatment process easy and the results are positive.
This is the first case at K Hospital to undergo a new generation robotic kidney tumor removal surgery and also one of the very few kidney cancer cases to be applied this modern surgery.
