To Make an Appointment

Laparoscopic urology is a minimally invasive surgery performed with the help of a laparoscope. The device also has an inbuilt camera and long thin instruments attached. This surgery is a keyhole to the grand surgical processes. Laparoscopic urologic surgeries are preferred over open-surgeries because it corrects urological issues without causing much discomfort to the patient. Furthermore, with this surgery, patients experience a much better postoperative experience.

With robotic technology advancements, laparoscopic urology has become much easier because robotic surgery provides much better visualization and enhanced agility to the surgeon.

This surgery has been applied to multiple cancerous and non-cancerous urological problems. It has also been used in treating conditions that affect a variety of urological organs, including kidneys, prostate, lymph node, ureters, etc. One of the primary applications of laparoscopy is kidney cancer removal.

Why is laparoscopic urology surgery used?
This minimally invasive surgery has been known to treat multiple conditions that affect urologic organs.

  • Simple, Partial, and Radical Nephrectomy
  • Renal Cyst Surgery
  • Radical Prostatectomy

Benefits of laparoscopic urology surgery
There are multiple advantages for the patient who operated with laparoscopic surgery instead of an open procedure. These benefits include:

  • Reduced postoperative pain: Because of smaller incisions and less blood loss, patients experience very minimal discomfort.
  • Shorter hospitalization: The surgery time is slightly longer, yet the hospital stays comparatively less in this surgery.
  • Faster recovery: Due to small incisions recovery period is quicker for the more this surgery decreases the exposure of internal organs catching infections.
  • Less blood loss: This process reduces the chances of a blood transfusion.

Preoperative preparation in laparoscopic urology
There is no such preoperative preparation to be done by the patient. However, the surgeon must perform some standardized imaging procedure to be insured if the affected organs or the organs around them are of normal size. If the affected organ is enormous, the space required for mobilization is restricted. Still, if an adjacent organ is enlarged, surgeons may feel limited as the surgical area is reduced.

Post-surgery care
It is well-known that laparoscopic surgery provides a patient with minimal postoperative discomfort. The recovery process of laparoscopic urology includes oral nutrition from the very next day, routine lab tests on the same day. The following day is reserved to monitor the patient if required, nullifying epidural catheters, and most importantly, antibiotic prophylaxis is not needed post-operation. So most patients are out of the hospital in just two days after surgery.
