Kidney Reconstructive Surgery
There are conditions of the kidney that require surgery that are not related to cancer. In these situations, either the kidney is obstructed or not functioning properly. Dr. Badani has extensive experience in treating these reconstructive conditions.
A condition called Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction (UPJ), where the connection between the kidney and there ureter (the tube that drains urine down to the bladder) is narrowed or blocked. This procedure, robotic pyeloplasty, requires a repair to remove the narrow segment and reconnect the healthy ends together. This procedure restores normal drainage of urine flow, and importantly, prevents future decline in kidney function.
Robotic Simple Nephrectomy for Non-functional Kidney
In some instances, a kidney is not working any longer due to long standing obstruction, kidney stones, or infection. Many times, these diseased kidney need to be removed before they cause more trouble in the future. Dr. Badani performs this operation through 3-4 small holes and most patients are home the next day.
