Laparoscopic Urologic Surgery is a technique that uses small incisions to operate in the abdomen. It is a less painful surgery that results in faster healing and less surgical trauma. It uses specialized instruments and a telescope with different viewing angles to perform surgery in the abdomen. The process uses a harmonic scalpel to make the surgery bloodless and less painful.
The IV line provides the patient with flips and medications. A tube drains the bladder after which small incisions are placed inside the abdomen. These incisions are used to place the surgical instruments and laparoscope. The surgeon further conducts the surgery using the pictures from the laparoscope on a video screen.
The major benefits of this surgery are:
-Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is a successful treatment option for people with big (i.e. > 4 cm) kidney cancer. This procedure allows patients to have their affected kidney and tumor safely and at least surgically.
– Kidney cysts are a very frequent and harmless illness that affects both men and women. For big, symptomatic kidney cysts, laparoscopic renal cyst ablation is an effective nonsurgical therapy.
-Adrenal tumors are rare, but they can cause serious complications such as high blood pressure, excessive perspiration, palpitations, weight gain, and headaches. Laparoscopic and robotic adrenalectomy is required to treat adrenal tumors.
-A radical prostatectomy (prostate removal) is an operation that removes the whole prostate gland as well as some surrounding tissue. This procedure is used to treat prostate cancer.
Before any operation, it is critical to determine whether the patient is physically capable of undergoing the procedure. For this purpose, doctors check various conditions in the human body via a few tests. The following are some tests that a doctor can do before performing Laparoscopic Urologic Surgery-
