Kidney Cancer Care

Our team has developed groundbreaking techniques to detect, diagnose and treat kidney cancer — and give you the best care possible.

Exceptional Diagnosis and Treatment of Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer is one of the most common cancers in men and women. Our USC Kidney Cancer Program team uses advanced imaging and testing to diagnose kidney cancer and determine the best treatment. Our goal is to preserve your kidney function.

We offer the latest chemotherapies to target cancer cells. We also offer immunotherapy to activate your body’s own natural defenses.

To treat complicated tumors, our surgeons are constantly perfecting new techniques. We offer minimally invasive options, including:

  • Cryotherapy — to freeze small tumors
  • Partial nephrectomy — to remove only the tumor
  • Radical nephrectomy — to remove the whole kidney, if necessary

Why Choose Us for Kidney Cancer Care

Our cancer and urology programs are ranked among the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report.

Our world-renowned team specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of simple to complex kidney cancers.

We offer you access to cutting-edge clinical trials and innovative therapies and surgeries.

Our researchers are working on new ways to regenerate tissue to repair kidneys.

Our experts work together as a multidisciplinary team to give you the best possible care and outcome.
