Laparoscopic Surgery is minimally invasive – so much so that it is considered a scar-less surgery. Your surgeon makes a very small incision, inserts a scope which projects large and clear images of the anatomy onto a TV screen, enabling treatment of the diseased tissue with great precision.
NJCPC&U performs Laparoscopic Nephrectomy, the partial or total removal of the kidney, for patients suffering from kidney cancer or an otherwise diseased kidney. As with other minimally invasive techniques, patients avoid the discomfort and risks of open surgery, experiencing instead less pain, much shorter hospitalization, a quicker return to routine activities and the benefit of a good cosmetic result.
NJCPC&U also offers Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy for patients who have non-cancerous or cancerous tumors or masses of the adrenal gland. The advanced technique offers a solution for larger tumors that in the past have had to be removed via open surgery. Your surgeon is able to address the tumor with precision thus decreasing the risk of an incomplete excision. This procedure is now used for large tumors in the adrenal gland that otherwise would require an open surgery. As with all laparoscopic surgery, the operative time is markedly reduced and patients enjoy the benefits of minimally invasive surgery.
