Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System
The system provides a surgeon with precise tiny instruments to manage surgery with maximal safety and accuracy. A surgeon manipulates on a special console, observing the operated area on 3D images in real-time. The tiny instruments make accurate incisions excluding the “trembling hand” effect and wrong movements.
Da Vinci robotic system is used as an alternative to open surgery to reduce pain, bleeding, minimize risks of infection and trauma of healthy tissues. An operation is performed through several 1cm incisions, not a big one 15 cm in size as for open surgery. Due to this, a patient recovers faster compared to traditional surgery: within 2-3 weeks instead of several months.
According to the data of 46 robotic-assisted nephrectomies performed, the total duration of surgery was 255 min, which is about 1.5 times longer than for open surgery. The blood loss during robotic intervention was 268 ml, meanwhile this index for open surgery is 1.5 times higher. It was reported that hospital stay was longer after open surgery.

CyberKnife is a robotic device to perform radiosurgery with precise radiation delivery to the organs affected with benign and malignant tumors.
This method allows destroying tumors without incisions and pain; it is frequently used as an alternative to surgery when neoplasms are hard to reach or cannot be operated. The radiation is directed accurately, so it does not affect healthy tissues or organs. Treatment with CyberKnife is an outpatient procedure: just after a session (it lasts about 30-90 minutes), a patient can return home and their everyday activities.
40 patients with kidney cancer were examined. The medium follow-up continued for 28.1 months. After the CyberKnife therapy, in 98% of cases, cancer had been localized for 9 months. The complete remission rate was 42.2%.

Gamma Knife is a radiosurgery device to manage radiation therapy. It uses 192 radiation beams to precisely target brain tumors. Each beam goes separately through the healthy brain tissues, and then they meet together in the target delivering there a high radiation dose.
The procedure is painless, performed without incisions and anesthesia. It is an alternative to traditional surgery for hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. A GammaKnife session does not require admission; a patient can go back home and return to allowed activities just after a procedure.
Within the study, 42 patients with brain metastases caused by kidney cancer received Gamma Knife treatment. In 80% of patients, neurological symptoms improved after Gamma Knife. MRI showed that brain metastases disappear at all in 9 people. The medium survival rate was more than 1 year.

Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy affecting tumors with protons, not X-rays. The X-rays damage healthy tissues on their way to a tumor that limits their usage. In the case with proton therapy, protons precisely hit a neoplasm, while healthy tissues remain unaffected that allow using stronger doses of irradiation to hit tumors located near vital organs. During a session, a patient lays on the table and a machine rotates producing proton beams to hit a tumor.
This is an outpatient procedure; a person can leave a hospital just after a session is over. Usually, the whole treatment cycle takes 30 minutes to complete. It usually continues 5 times a week for several weeks. The radiation dose may change over the treatment. No specific rehab is needed. Such side effects as fatigue, headache, hair loss that can develop over time.
22 patients adef 67 years on average with renal cell carcinoma were enrolled in the study. Clinicians received the following results after a medium follow-up of 37 months: 95% was a 3-year overall survival rate; no recurrence registered.
