This video demonstrates laparoscopic robot-assisted living donor nephrectomy. The technique of harvest of both left and right kidneys is shown. The role of the assistant is emphasized, as well as the importance of a counter-incision for delivering the specimen. This is a complex and high-risk procedure for expert laparoscopic surgeons.
