Minimally Invasive Surgery for Kidney Cancer: Eduardo’s Story

After a long journey to Baltimore for treatment, Eduardo Giez Estima recovered in record time.

Patient Story Highlights

  • Eduardo Giez Estima traveled from his home country of Brazil for treatment after a colleague recommended he see Mohamad Allaf, M.D., director of minimally invasive and robotic urologic surgery at Johns Hopkins. 
  • Dr. Allaf removed Eduardo’s kidney tumor using a minimally invasive, kidney-sparing surgical approach pioneered at the Brady Urological Institute — and Eduardo was up walking the very same day. 
  • Eduardo and his wife were assisted throughout the process by a Portuguese language coordinator and the international office at Johns Hopkins.
