|Dear Richard K Mahan
We are not sure what is the nature of your kidney mass but if your doctor recommends surgery for a kidney disease for example kidney cancer, you might be a candidate for a non-invasive, kidney-sparing surgery.
Depending on your disease state and tumor location, you might not need to lose your entire kidney to surgery. A surgical technique called partial nephrectomy removes only the diseased a part of your kidney while sparing the healthy, functioning kidney tissue. Sparing kidney tissue is important because studies show that patients who have their entire kidney removed may are afflicted by chronic kidney disease (CKD) after surgery than patients who received a kidney-sparing partial nephrectomy.
In fact, the American Urological Association states that partial nephrectomy is the defacto standard treatment choice for small to medium-sized kidney tumors or masses.
