Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Kidney surgery is an exiting field that has progressed considerably in the last few years. It is becoming more and more minimally invasive and with a special focus on nephron-sparing techniques. It is quite diverse and is becoming even more so. Kidney surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures, from endo-urological and endo-vascular techniques to robotics and kidney transplantation. New imaging tools also yield better anatomical definition of structures and enable safer and more precise surgical procedures. Kidney surgery has always been defiant, but these technical advances have brought novel challenges and also new opportunities for improvement.

In this Special Issue, we welcome authors to submit papers on the challenges and opportunities in the surgical management of kidney diseases.

Dr. Miguel Silva-Ramos
Guest Editor
