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.

Procedure of Kidney Cancer Robotic Surgery:

Let’s read how the procedure of Kidney Cancer Treatment in Mumbai is carried out by Dr. Mangesh Patil.

After a series of small incisions are made in the abdomen and the camera and instrument-bearing arms of the robot are inserted, the abdomen is inflated with gas. The colon is then moved away from the kidney, and the fat covering the kidney is trimmed away to expose the kidney surface. Next, blood flow to the kidney is temporarily halted to prevent bleeding while the tumour is cut out and the remaining kidney tissue is sutured together. After the kidney is reconstructed, its blood flow is restored and the kidney is carefully inspected to ensure there’s no bleeding.

The operating surgeon is seated a few feet away from the surgeon operating the console, the robotic instrument is controlled by the surgeon in real-time with highly accurate movement scaling. The robotic surgeon controls 2-3 multi-jointed robotic instruments to perform the tasks of dissection, cauterization, cutting and suturing. Also, the surgeon controls a stereoscopic lens which provides a 3D, high definition image of the body. Once the tumor is extracted from the kidney, it is immediately kept within a plastic sack which is later removed entirely at the end of the operation through an end of one of the current abdominal cut. The kidney hole is then closed with stitches and surgical glue and the blood supply to the kidney is restored. A small duct is left at the end of the procedure, exiting one of the keyhole incisions. Finally, the piece of mass is removed from the stomach through the plastic sack and the skin holes are closed using plastic surgery techniques to minimize the scares.


While a partial nephrectomy can be also done using open surgery or laparoscopic surgery, robotic kidney surgery offers significant advantages over both of these approaches.

Less trauma and scarring and faster recovery as compared to open surgery.

A robotic kidney surgery uses small incisions and doesn’t require cutting of muscles.

Faster recovery time- typically just 2 weeks, as compared to the open surgery procedure.

Robotic surgery provides a 3D view as compared to traditional laparoscopic surgery which provides a 2D view.

Robotic kidney surgery provides a wider range of surgical instruments to make the surgery easy to perform.

Less blood loss as compared to laparoscopic surgery.

Kidney cancer has been rising at a slow pace since 1970. Due to newer imaging tests such as CT scans, it has helped in detecting cancers that would have been difficult to discover otherwise

Robotic Surgery is been famed as the best bio-technical advancement.


This field is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of tumors related to urinary systems. The important part is of taking care of patients with kidney cancer, prostate cancer, testicular and bladder cancer.

Doctors who are trained in this field are called Uro-oncologists. Similarly, Dr. Mangesh Patil is an Uro-oncosurgeon and provides Kidney Cancer treatment in Mumbai. It is necessary to have the training in all three fields of surgery like open surgery, laparoscopy surgery, and robotic prostatectomy surgery. 

Different cases might require different skills. In order to be a leader in robotic oncosurgery, one has to have the experience of open surgery and laparoscopy beforehand. The surgery of these cancers is called Uro-oncosurgery.

Uro oncosurgery in India is used to treat following types of cancers:

Prostate cancer

Kidney cancer

Bladder cancer

With advancement in technology uro oncosurgeries have become more efficient and easy.
