The surgical team at Garibaldi-Nesima Hospital in Catania successfully removed a large locally advanced renal tumor that involved several vital anatomical structures in a 58-year-old woman.

The extraordinary operation, involving healthcare professionals from surgical, oncological, and support services departments, highlights the crucial importance of a multidisciplinary approach in treating patients with complex pathologies. The success of the complex operation was made possible by the technical skill, precision, collaboration, and coordination among the various specialty teams involved.
