Laparoscopic Nephrectomy

The urologic surgeon may perform a nephrectomy through a single incision in the abdomen or side (open nephrectomy) or through a series of small incisions in the abdomen using a camera and small instruments (laparoscopic nephrectomy).

In some cases, these laparoscopic procedures are performed using a robotic system.

Why it's done?

The most common reason a urologic surgeon performs a nephrectomy is to remove a tumour from the kidney. These tumours are usually cancerous, but they can be noncancerous (benign). Sometimes a nephrectomy is needed because of other kidney diseases.

What happens during a nephrectomy?

Your surgeon may use laparoscopic or open surgery. Before either kidney removal procedure, you will receive general anaesthesia (medication to help you remain asleep) to ensure you don’t feel anything.

During a laparoscopic nephrectomy, your surgeon:

  • Make one or a few small incisions in your abdomen or side.
  • Inserts a long wand with a camera (laparoscope) through the incision.
  • View the camera image from the laparoscope on a large screen.
  • Uses the camera image and small surgical tools to remove the diseased portion of your kidney or your entire kidney.
  • Closes all incisions with small stitches that will dissolve on their own.

What are the advantages of a nephrectomy?

In cases of kidney cancer, a nephrectomy can be a life-saving procedure. If you have a nephrectomy to remove a kidney for donation, your donor kidney can save someone else’s life. Most people function well with only one kidney.
