Laparoscopic Kidney Surgery

Home Laparoscopic Kidney Surgery

Many traditional urologic surgical procedures require large incisions with lengthy hospitalization and recovery. Laparoscopic or keyhole surgery to patients has revolutionized urologic surgery. Using a small telescope with built in magnification mechanism and a variety of long, thin surgical instruments placed, through approximately 3-5 incisions, the surgeon is able to perform minimally invasive surgery for a variety of urologic diseases and problems like adrenal tumor, Kidney cancer, bladder cancer, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, kidney stones. Patients who have undergone these procedures have enjoyed not only the same diagnostic and therapeutic benefits of traditional open surgery but also greatly reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospitalization, faster recovery, and better cosmetic results.
