What is Laparoscopic Urology

Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), or keyhole surgery, is one of the most recent surgical techniques in which operation is performed using a small incision. A flexible, thin tube known as Laparoscope, having a camera on its head is passed through the incision which projects the images on the monitor. The doctor performs the surgery by viewing the images on the screen.

This minimally invasive surgical option is used to treat almost all types of cancerous and non-cancerous urological conditions associated with various urologic organs such as the adrenal, bladder, kidney, testis, and prostate. 

What are the conditions we treat under laparoscopic urology

Some of the major conditions treated using Laparoscopic Urology is:

  • Acute renal failure
  • Addison's disease

What are the different types of laparoscopic urology procedures

Some of the major approaches of Laparoscopic surgery include:

  • Radical, Simple, And Partial Nephrectomy: Involves complete/partial removal of kidney affected by cancer, infection, or kidney disease.
  • Renal Cyst Surgery: The cyst on the kidney is usually benign; however they are prone to infection and can be painful or in worst cases can affect the functioning of the kidney. This cyst is removed by the renal cyst surgery procedure also called unroofing.
  • Pyeloplasty, Pyelolithotomy, Ureterolithotomy: It is a non-invasive reconstructive surgery that offers a less invasive option to open surgery in treating the conditions develop in the area where the ureter joins the renal pelvis
  • Uretero-Ureterostomy, Ureteric Reimplantation: It is a delicate process where Ureters obstructed by retroperitoneal fibrosis and require surgery to free them from surrounding scar-like tissue.
  • Bladder Diverticulectomy, Bladder Augmentation: A surgical procedure performed to treat herniations of bladder mucosa between the fibres of the detrusor muscle. 
  • Radical Cystectomy: Involves laparoscopic removal of the bladder, or part of the bladder in order to treat bladder cancer.
  • Radical Prostatectomy:   Involves laparoscopic removal of the prostate gland to treat prostate cancer.
  • Retroperitoneal And Iliac Lymph Node Dissection: The type of surgery involves the removal of the pelvic and retroperitoneal lymph nodes to determine and treat the extent of urological cancer such as testicular and bladder cancer.
  • Adrenalectomy: Surgery is performed to treat cancer of the adrenal gland that sits just above the kidney, which can cause high blood pressure and other hormonal imbalance.
