Robotic Kidney Transplant with Regional Hypothermia- the First U.S. Transplants


This documentary takes a look at the history behind the Vattikuti Urology Institute and Medanta Vattikuti Robotic Surgery Institute collaborating to develop a new means of kidney transplantation. The method, devised by VUI Chair Dr. Mani Menon, uses ice slush to keep the kidney cold while the transplant is being completed inside the recipient’s body. Includes video from inside the operating room and even inside the human body as we see the work being done. 41:15
