Types: Symptoms | Diagnostic Techniques | Treatment Options
There are many disorders that can affect the kidneys, from renal failure and kidney stones to kidney infections and cancer. Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer.
Many forms of kidney disease do not show symptoms until later stages.
It is important to get an accurate diagnosis of your kidney complications.
There are different diagnostic techniques and treatment options for each kidney disease. Kidney cancer management can include partial or total surgical removal with laparoscopic or open techniques, as well as various ablation techniques utilizing heating or freezing. We also participate in many clinical trials for patients with advanced kidney cancer.
