Caption

Robot-assisted kidney removal surgery. Internal camera view of surgery to remove a cancerous kidney. The colon is at left (pink) and a back muscle is at right (dark red). A vein has has a clamp (white, right) applied to minimise bleeding during this robot-assisted surgery. The tools are inserted into the patient's body through small incisions in the abdomen. This minimally invasive surgery is less traumatic than opening up the abdomen. Robotic assistance is used for precision parts of the operation that involve clamping and dissecting the renal artery and vein, and the ureter. When, as here, the kidney's ureter is removed as well, the operation is called a nephroureterectomy.
