Thank you for the information. Robotic pyeloplasty has been recommended to treat hydronephrosis caused by a blood vessel blocking the flow of urine from my right kidney. A stent was inserted and the surgery is to provide a long term solution. I am concerned about the measured 22% function in my right kidney and hope to see it improve.
