Robotic-assisted surgery in kidney transplantation saved life again!

Because the successful Kidney Transplantation technique called Volkan Tugcu method saved life.

Retired journalist Erdal Aydın, who had been performed kidney transplant surgery in the US 42 years ago, was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year. He had to be perform surgery, but if the open surgery would be performed, he could lose his kidney which had taken from his brother.

Surgeons advised Mr. Tugcu that he could only a Professor of Urology in the world can treat kidney failure (end-stage renal disease (ESRD), because Tugcu's kidney transplantation (RAKT) scientific development in practice presented  on scientific  literature. You can check his articles about the innovative scientific methods on kidney transplation from the European Urology web site.

Erdal Aydın was successfully performed robot-assisted kidney transplantation called Tugcu's kidney transplantation method. Use of a robotic technique can yield low complication rates, minimum blood loss, excellent graft function, rapid recovery, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster return to normal life.. It is especially advantageous in patients who are overweight and who have been performed kidney transplantation surgery in the abdomen before. Prof Tugcu and his team made small surgical cuts where the prostate meets his bladder and removed the prostate tumore, even the lymph, through the daVinci robot‐assisted kidney transplantation. Thanks to robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP), surgical success achieved. RALP is considered by many the gold standard surgical treatment for localised prostate cancer.


A radical prostatectomy is a surgery to remove your entire prostate gland and seminal vesicles. Some of the lymph nodes in patient’s pelvis are removed as well. This was done to prevent cancer from spreading from his prostate to other parts of his body.
