Laparoscopy Surgery in Urology
surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), keyhole surgery,
or pinhole surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations
in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5-1.5cm)
key element in laparoscopic surgery is the use of a laparoscope: a
telescopic rod lens system that is usually connected to a video camera.
Also attached is a fiber optic cable system connected to a light source
to illuminate the operative field. The abdomen is usually insufflated
with carbon dioxide gas to create a working and viewing space. The gas
used is CO2, as it is common to the human body and can be removed by the
respiratory system if it absorbs through tissue.

Laparoscopy Kidney Surgery
Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for kidney cancer. The entire kidney is removed as a cure for kidney cancer. Kidneys that are not
functioning and infected can also be removed with this technique.
Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy
for smaller kidney cancer
and preservation of kidney
function is desired. Only a portion of the kidney is removed and the
area is repaired by laparoscopic placement
for transitional cell cancer of the kidney or ureter. The entire kidney
ureter (urine tube joining
kidney to bladder) is removed as cure for transitional cell cancer.
of kidney cyst for a large and obstructing kidney cyst. Fluid from the kidney cyst is aspirated and the cyst is decompressed
before complete removal.
Laparoscopic pyeloplasty for pelvic ureteric junction obstruction. This is usually done for congenital
or in—born obstruction at the junction between the kidney and ureter.
Laparoscopy Prostate Surgery
Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy by the extra peritoneal approach for early prostate cancer. The entire prostate gland is removed
as a cure for prostate cancer.
Laparoscopy Hernia Surgery
Laparoscopic hernia repair
or hernniorraphy for inguinal and recurrent hernia. We use the total
extra peritoneal approach to completely mimic open surgery with
advantages of laparoscopy.
Laparoscopy Varicocele Surgery
for varicoceles causing pain or subfertility in male. Especially
advantageous in patients with two sided varicocele where surgery on both
sides can be done with similar set of incisions.
Laparoscopy Adrenal Surgery
for adrenal gland tumor or growth. The entire adrenal gland is removed
either due to adrenal cancer or a growth that is causing hormonal
disturbance such as Cushing syndrome, hypertension or
Other Laparoscopy Urology Surgeries
Laparoscopic ureterolithotomy for large ureter stone. Very large ureter stone that is causing obstruction can be removed completely
with a single step.
Laparoscopic reimplantation of ureter for ureter stricture or injury. Ends of the narrowed or injured ureter
are reattached to the bladder in order to restore continuity of urine flow.
Laparoscopic augmentation cystoplasty
for small and
contracted bladder. A
segment of small intestine is used to increase the size of the diseased
