From kidney removal to adrenal surgery, Cleveland Clinic specialists are equipped with the latest technology to provide the best individualized kidney treatment for each of our patients. The Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute has pioneered several kidney procedures such as partial nephrectomy and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, both of which remove only the cancerous portion and preserve the rest of the kidney. Also, advances are being made by freezing (cryoablation) or heating cancerous tissue with radio waves (radiofrequency ablation), which also allows for kidney preservation.
Our surgeons are world renowned experts in kidney cancer treatment. The Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute is one of the top two urology programs in the nation according to U.S. News and World Report’s annual "America’s Top Hospitals" survey, and Cleveland Clinic was ranked among the top five best treatment facilities for kidney disease. Rest assured, our physicians will tailor a kidney cancer treatment program to provide you with the best possible outcome and improved quality of life.
