Best Robotic surgeon

Awesome. He just did an removal of a renal cell carcinoma in the right upper pole of the kidney in about 3 1/2 hours robotically, saving almost all of the kidney, preserving kidney function in a patient who will need it. No other urologist could do this in this time,or without doing a partial nephrectomy, or converting to an open procedure.
