OBJECTIVE To evaluate establishment of overnight stay only as sufficient after robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN). METHODS Stated benefits of minimally invasive surgery include reduced hospitalization, but published hospital stays after laparoscopic or robotic partial nephrectomy are not significantly less than with open surgery. We developed a clinical pathway targeting discharge on postoperative day (POD) 1 after RPN of any complexity. We reviewed all RPNs by a single surgeon since… CONTINUE READING
