OBJECTIVES To report on our initial experience with robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy. Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy requires experience and a lengthy learning curve to successfully accomplish tumor excision and renal reconstruction, which may adversely prolong the ischemia time. The advent of robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery has proved successful in prostate cancer surgery, encouraging a growing number of centers to apply this technology to complex renal surgery.
