The combination of medical imaging and three-dimensional printing produces highly accurate models of patients’ unique renal anatomy. Cleveland Clinic is evaluating the technology’s use in surgical training and simulation, patient and physician education, and one day even for automated surgery.
A Novel Tool for Difficult Intra-abdominal Vasal Reconstruction
Cleveland Clinic surgeons have developed a robot-assisted vasovasostomy technique for intra-abdominal vasal obstructions that is safe and highly effective in treating this difficult condition.
Preserving Kidney Function in Renal Cell Carcinoma
Neoadjuvant tyrosine kinase inhibitor can downsize clear cell renal cell carcinoma and enable partial nephrectomy in some patients who would otherwise require radical nephrectomy.
First Robotic Pediatric Partial Nephrectomy at Cleveland Clinic
Cleveland Clinic’s first robot-assisted pediatric partial nephrectomy shows that in addition to reconstructive procedures or reimplants in the pediatric population, extirpative robotic procedures are a safe option.

Robot-assisted Radical Perineal Prostatectomy: From Laboratory to Clinic
The robotic platform has aided dissection and reconstruction in confined anatomical spaces. Could it help overcome the anatomic challenges of the perineal approach to radical prostatectomy and potentially benefit patients?
