What is nephrectomy?

Overview:Nephrectomy is a surgical procedure done to remove all or a part of the kidney. A nephrectomy is usually performed to treat kidney cancer or to remove a noncancerous tumor. In some cases, a nephrectomy is done to deal with a diseased or damaged kidney.

In cases of donor nephrectomy, the urologic surgeon removes a healthy kidney from a donor for transplant into a person who needs a functioning kidney.

A nephrectomy may either be performed through a single incision in the abdomen or through a series of small incisions in the abdomen using a camera and small instruments.
