Abstract

Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) has emerged as a viable technique for nephron-sparing surgery. In this article, we review the outcomes of RAPN in its current iteration, with attention to operative, oncological, and functional outcomes. In addition, we highlight techniques that may serve to enhance outcomes.
