We have published the results of surgery for removal of the kidney (nephrectomy) on this website since 2012. Details include the types of operation performed, mortality rates for all hospitals (and for the majority of those surgeons performing these procedures) with information about surgeon and unit complications, transfusion rates and length of hospital stay.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this section, BAUS does not accept any liability arising from any errors or omissions or the use of, or reliance on, the information contained in this website, and reserves the right to change the information and descriptions as and when required.
In looking at these data, it is important to bear in mind that variations in the data between individual surgeons and units may be a reflection of case complexity or patient factors. We strongly recommend, therefore, that individual patients discuss the likely outcomes of their procedure with their urologist before any operation. This will help them understand the expected outcome of this complex procedure, and will take into account factors relevant to their particular case.
It is also important to note that as a result of the COVID-19 crisis some surgeons and units may have been unable to submit all or any of their 2019 data.
