My kidney cancer was removed with three tiny incisions using minimally invasive expertise that until recently was only available in the Lower Mainland

Stones led to discovering a 2cm cancer tumour on my right kidney. My initial thought was other people get cancer. Nobody likes to think they will get it. But when it gets removed it feels really good.

With no additional treatments needed, I was cancer free and started to heal really quickly.

During my stay at KGH, I joked with my son that I had gone to great lengths to spend time with him. As a third year medical student, not only does Tyler spend a wealth of time learning from today’s surgeons, it is his dream is to become one and continue surgical advancements well into the future.
