Hi @granny50846
There are several members in the Cancer group talking about kidney cancer surgery. I'm not sure if some of them have had robotic surgery for partial nephrectomy. You can read more about it here: https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/robotic-surgery/about/pac-20394974

Granny, when do you expect to have surgery?

@granny50846, I am not experienced in the cancer or the surgery that you are facing. However, I was drawn to your question because I saw the words "Kidney" and "Robotic Surgery".
A couple days ago there was a video Q&A from the Pediatric Department at Mayo. And there was a short segment about Robotic Surgery, that I found very informative. I want to share it with you, just in case you are interested. It is a relatively short video, only 30 minutes –
