Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy
7 months ago
Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove a portion of a kidney affected by a tumor while preserving the healthy functioning kidney tissue. The surgery is performed using a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera and surgical instruments attached, inserted through small incisions in the abdomen. During the surgery, the surgeon carefully removes the tumor and surrounding tissue, leaving the healthy portion of the kidney intact. This technique is preferred over traditional open surgery as it offers a shorter recovery time, less scarring, and less pain for the patient. Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy is used to treat kidney cancer and other kidney conditions. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes two to three hours. After the surgery, the patient will need to stay in the hospital for a few days and will need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity for several weeks.
