The indications for nephron-sparing surgery and for minimally invasive surgery are continually expanding. Nephron-sparing surgery, also known as partial nephrectomy, presents a challenge to the minimally invasive surgeon. Herein, we describe our technique of robot-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy. This approach may have potential advantages of including easier excision and suturing. Moderate training is required.
