Kidney Cancer

Cleveland Clinic is known around the world for its advances in the treatment of kidney disease, including cancer. In the past, the typical kidney cancer treatment was the removal of the entire kidney, called total nephrectomy. Cleveland Clinic urologists have the world's largest experience in partial nephrectomy, removing only the cancerous part of the kidney. This kidney-sparing surgery, which is just as effective but keeps kidney tissue that may be required later in life, requires surgical expertise in both kidney reconstruction and vascular surgery techniques. This kidney cancer treatment technique was pioneered by the late Andrew C. Novick, MD, former Chairman of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute.
