In laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery) the surgical intervention is performed by small cut in the abdominal wall. A camera and the operating instruments are put through it, for example for operations on kidney, adrenal gland, prostate or ureter. The camera transmits the image to a screen at multiple magnifications. The operation can thus be monitored, precisely controlled and performed.
There are several advantages to the patient: there are no big scars on the body, less pain is caused, the hospital stay is shorter and recovery is often faster. At the same time in laparoscopic surgical procedures have the same prospect of recovery for canser surgery and plastic surgery as in a conventional surgery.
We focus on:
- Testicular carcinoma: lymph node removal in the abdomen (radical or modified) for diagnosis and therapy
- Anomalies of testicle position: search for testicles in the abdomen, orchidectomy
- Varicose veins on the scrotum: ligation and transect of the vessels
- Renal carcinoma: radical tumor nephrectomy, in small tumors kidney-perserving operation with the aid of partial resections
- Floating kidney: locking the kidney
- Functionless kidney: removal of the kidney
- Ablation, fenestration of renal cysts
- Adrenal gland removal in benign or malignant tumors or in hormone-producing adrenal tumors
- Removal of the kidney and ureter with a urinary bladder cuff
- Lymphocele fenestration
- Retroperitoneoscopic fenestration or removal of renal cysts and removal of small kidney tumors
- Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy of prolapces after hysterectomy
