Kidney Cancer Treatment in Mumbai
Kidney cancer is a condition that begins in the kidneys. It occurs when healthy cells in one kidney or both kidneys become out of control and develop a lump (called as a tumor).
In Kidney cancer, the kidney cells become cancerous and grow out of control which leads to forming tumors. The cells usually occurs in the lining of tiny tubes in the kidney called “renal tubules”. These tubules purify your blood and make urine. This type of kidney cancer is also called as renal cell carcinoma.
The good thing is that most kidney cancers are detected early, before they spread and metastasize to distant organs. Cancers detected early are easy and successful to treat. But, these tumors can grow to be pretty large before they are detected. Dr. Mangesh Patil is a specialist in providing Kidney Cancer treatment in Mumbai.
Robotic partial nephrectomy has become the robotic kidney surgery of choice for most patients with kidney cancer or a benign kidney tumour. In this procedure, the kidney tumour is removed while leaving the rest of the kidney intact, an approach that has been shown to maximise the patient’s post-operative kidney function. The Da Vinci robot’s superior manoeuvrability is ideally suited for the delicate cutting and stitching required in this surgery, while the procedure’s minimally-invasive nature offers numerous advantages to the patient, including less trauma and faster recovery time.
