Renal Surgery: information for patients

Appointments and clinic details

You may be referred into the service via a number of routes.

If an abnormality has been seen on your kidney that may represent a kidney cancer, you will be seen in the Renal Cancer Clinic. This is usually held every Friday afternoon in the Urology Outpatient Department.

At this appointment you will be seen by the urology consultant and a decision will be made about what to do next. When possible you should also see your Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) at this stage, who will provide you with information and support.

If you require surgery, the team will put you onto the waiting list. Some patients may need additional investigations or treatments such as chemotherapy. In these circumstances patients will be referred to Dr Andrew Protheroe, a Medical Oncologist, who looks after patients when cancer has spread beyond the kidney.

The Kidney Cancer Oncology Clinics run every Tuesday morning in the Cancer Centre Oncology Outpatient Department. You will also see your CNS at this clinic.
