Calling all Ontario patients and caregivers

Participate in an Interview on Kidney Cancer and Robotic Surgery


What is the opportunity?

Ontario Health is currently reviewing robot-assisted nephrectomy (surgical removal of part or all of the kidney) for people with kidney cancer. This review will result in a recommendation to the Ontario Ministry of Health about the potential expanded public funding of this type of surgery.


What is robotic assisted nephrectomy?

Robotic assisted nephrectomy is a minimally invasive surgery where the surgeon will control robotic instruments to perform the procedure.

We are looking to speak to:

  • People with kidney cancer who have had kidney removal surgery
  • People with kidney cancer who may be waiting to undergo a kidney removal surgery
  • Caregivers or family members of those above


What do we need from you?

  • Time Commitment: 30 – 40 minutes interview
  • Location: By phone
