Robotic Kidney Transplant

Kidney Transplantation (KT) is the most preferred standard of care for patients with end-stage renal disease. Open surgery, i.e., making a large incision, has traditionally been used for kidney transplants. However, in recent times, the treatment has been performed using minimally invasive surgical procedures.
Robot-Assisted Kidney Transplantation (RAKT) is a minimally invasive procedure that uses robotic support to accomplish kidney transplantation. Because KT and Robotic Surgery require a high level of expertise, RAKT is conducted by transplant surgeons who have received substantial training and experience in both fields.
