For Healthcare Professionals: Kidney Cancer

Patients with kidney cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering receive care from a multidisciplinary Genitourinary Disease Management Team. We use advanced imaging techniques such as 3-D CT, 3-D MRI angiography, and CT urography to evaluate the renal pelvis and minimize diagnostic testing. Our physicians have expertise in standard open surgical approaches as well as minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic and robotic surgery, and we regularly perform partial nephrectomies and radical nephrectomies.
