In acquiring the surgical and clinical skills needed to be an efficient urological oncologist and kidney transplant surgeon, I pursued the kidney and pancreas transplant Fellowship at The Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute of the Cleveland Clinic (Ohio, USA)... This includes intensive training in multi-organ procurement techniques, exposing the Fellow to surgical fields and areas of the abdominal cavity that urologists might not be entirely familiar with, but would still need to master if a large right-sided renal mass with a vena caval thrombus is encountered... Liver mobilization and exposure of the retrohepatic vena cava (integral for successfully executing such a procedure) become common practice after performing a run of multi-organ procurements... Moreover, the Fellowship includes extensive exposure to advanced minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures, i.e. laparoscopic donor nephrectomy... There is the urological kidney transplant group (David Goldfarb, Venk Krishnamurthi, Stuart Flechner, Daniel Shoskes, John Rabets, Charles Modlin and Alvin Wee) and the pancreas transplant group comprising Krishnamurthi, Rabets and Wee, who are all urologists, in addition to Charles Winans, who is a liver transplant surgeon... Graduating Fellows will be able to perform a wide range of very difficult procedures after ‘fine tuning’ the surgical and clinical skills needed to perform multi-organ procurement, kidney and pancreas transplantation, and treat complex cases of RCC and renal revascularization, in addition to the challenging laparoscopic donor nephrectomy... The real initiator of such a Fellowship at the Urology Department of the Cleveland Clinic (currently The Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute) was the late Andrew Novick (1948–2008)... Unfortunately he died during my Fellowship, but I could clearly appreciate his profound effect through all the staff with whom I worked... All of them had either completed their residencies or Fellowship with him... His contributions form the backbone of modern renal surgery... His vision of training a comprehensive kidney surgeon who is capable of treating surgical kidney disease, albeit renovascular disease, renal failure and RCC, is being realised, and I am proud to be a graduate of such a fine programme.
