Dr. Badani on Determining Which Patients With RCC Will Receive Robotic Surgery

Ketan K. Badani, MD
Published: Tuesday, Sep 05, 2017



Ketan K. Badani, MD, professor of urology at Mount Sinai Hospital, discusses how to determine which patient with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) will benefit from robotic surgery.

Who receives robotic surgery for RCC remains in the hands of the physician, explains Badani. Doing an open partial nephrectomy, a laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, or a robotic partial nephrectomy are all good options when treating a patient.

As a physician’s experience matures with robotic surgery, they will start to see the advantages of it but should offer what they feel comfortable with, states Badani. Most kidney operations done in the United States are not done using robotics.
