A nephrectomy is the surgical removal (resection) of a kidney. It is prescribed for tumors or chronic inflammatory diseases, when the body stops working properly and negatively affects the entire body.

  • Complete and partial resection of the kidney is possible. In world practice, doctors always try to save part of the organ. At the same time, they remove even large tumors up to 4, and sometimes up to 7 cm. A well-performed partial resection allows you to cope with the disease and preserve kidney function. You will receive effective treatment and save both kidneys.
  • Nephrectomy is performed by an open method, laparoscopically or using a Da Vinci robot. In international practice, open surgery, which requires a large incision (15-20 cm), is rarely performed by doctors. This method is considered too traumatic, with a high risk of postoperative complications, a long and painful rehabilitation period. Modern medical technologies make it possible to remove the kidney laparoscopically (through 3-4 thin punctures up to 1 cm) or on a Da Vinci robot. At the same time, you will spend only 2-3 days in the hospital and will be able to return to your usual way of life.
  • Consider the experience of the surgeon. A kidney tumor is a rare disease, so not every doctor has enough experience in performing a complete or partial resection. If you have been recommended such an operation, pay attention to the qualifications of the surgeon. Not only his experience is important, but also the number of surgical interventions performed by him, their success, skills in performing laparoscopic nephrectomy or kidney removal on the Da Vinci robot.

We have prepared for you a rating of the best clinics for nephrectomy. If you find it difficult to make a choice, please contact your Bookimed medical coordinator. We are here 24/7 to always take care of your health.

We got to the MEMORIAL clinic due to an urgent diagnosis. The successful outcome of the operation depended on promptness. The question was about days. The operation was carried out the next day. The most difficult operation according to the Whipple method. Conducted by professor, head of surgery. Low bow to him. The entire staff of the department works perfectly, promptly responds to any request. Separately, I want to say about the work of the translator Aida. High qualification, operational work at any time of the day, sincerity - only a small description of her qualities. Special thanks for providing meals to the patient and accompanying person.

FAQ about Nephrectomy in Turkey

Nephrectomy - what is it?

A nephrectomy is the surgical removal of a kidney. This is a radical procedure that is performed strictly under general anesthesia. If it is possible to leave part of the kidney, the doctor performs an incomplete nephrectomy or resection . It is important to know that this operation is possible only if the second kidney is absolutely healthy.

Types of nephrectomy

Depending on the method of carrying out, nephrectomy is divided into several types:

  • open nephrectomy;
  • laparoscopic surgery;
  • nephrectomy with robotic da Vinci system.

Open (cavitary) nephrectomy

Abdominal removal of the kidney is performed through an oblique incision in the lumbar region, the patient lies on a healthy side. By dissecting the tissues in layers, the surgeon reaches the kidney and separates it from the fatty capsule. Next, the organ is brought to the surface, the doctor bandages the ureter with adjacent vessels and excised them together with the renal pedicle. Having freed the organ from fixation, the surgeon removes it, sutures the surgical field in layers and applies a sterile bandage.

The duration of an open nephrectomy is 2-3 hours.

Laparoscopic kidney removal

The surgeon makes 3-4 punctures on the anterior and lateral surfaces of the abdominal wall (each 1 cm in diameter). Through them, a special instrument is inserted - a laparoscope with a camera for visualization and control of the operation. The doctor removes the kidney with the renal pedicle, ureter and blood vessels.

Laparoscopic nephrectomy is technically much more complicated than open surgery, but it has a number of advantages :


  • short rehabilitation period;
  • reduced postoperative pain syndrome;
  • absence of a large suture/scar in the patient.

Robotic surgery with Da Vinci

Specialists of foreign clinics are increasingly performing nephrectomy using the Da Vinci robotic unit . First of all, with its help, it is possible to carry out the most organ-preserving operation - to remove only a part of the affected kidney.

Today, the Da Vinci robot is the “gold standard” for nephrectomy. In the course of its implementation, the doctor controls the "hands" of the robot and makes punctures no larger than 1 cm. The duration of the robotic operation is about 2 hours, and the subsequent stay in the hospital is a maximum of 3 days.

Benefits of robotic nephrectomy with Da Vinci :


  • minimal blood loss and trauma during surgery;
  • low likelihood of complications;
  • short rehabilitation period (3-4 days), reduced pain syndrome;
  • absence of scars on the body after surgery.
