Robot assisted Partial Nephrectomy (RAPN) is a minimally invasive option for patients with small renal masses undergoing Partial Nephrectomy. In this review we provide an update on the oncological safety and renal functional outcomes following RAPN. We also discuss the novel techniques and technological advances that have contributed to the outcomes of RAPN.

Dr Fouad Khoury: President of the first robotic surgery congress in Lebanon and hosting Professor Alexandre Mottrie, CEO of ORSI academy, the largest robotic surgery training center in the world and President of the EAU Robotic Urology Section.
The Congress was held on the first of March 2016 at Saint George Hospital University Medical Center (SGHUMC) in Beirut and featured multiple lectures on the use of robotic surgery in medicine.
A convention between SGHUMC and OLV hospital in Belgium was signed in order to facilitate patient transfer from Lebanon to undergo Robotic surgery procedures in a referral center under the supervision and care of Dr. Fouad Khoury who was appointed Director of the Robotic Surgery program.
