Robotic-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy is a minimally invasive option for the treatment of benign renal disease in the pediatric population. Robotic surgery has not only been shown to be safe and effective in pediatric patients, but may also allow the pediatric surgeon to overcome many of the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery. This chapter is intended to provide a review of the indications, techniques, and postoperative management of robotic-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy for the treatment of benign kidney disease.
