Partial Nephrectomy: 'New Standard of Care' for RCC

Share this content:

With the widespread and abundant use of imaging and advances in diagnostic tools, the case volume of smaller renal masses is increasing in the United States. To surgically treat this condition, partial nephrectomy is a viable and recommended option for effectively removing small and localized cancerous tumors in the kidney with very high oncological efficacy.

Ronald Hrebinko, MD, associate professor of urology at UPMC, explains how partial nephrectomy is becoming the gold standard in successfully removing cancerous tumors while sparing the patient's kidney.
