Robotic assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy can be safely and effectively performed in pediatric patients for renal tumors while preserving renal function. Classically, cases such as the two described below have been managed with an open, invasive approach or by radical nephrectomy. These two cases, cared for in collaboration with specialists from Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, demonstrate the effectiveness of renal preservation using robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery applied for renal masses in two different pediatric patients. …Read More
