Laparoscopy in urology

Laparoscopy is a groundbreaking surgical method that was created in the 1990s for the benefit of both doctors and patients. It replicates more traditional surgical techniques, but due to visual enhancement, it is more accurate and precise. Because the treatment is carried out through the small  incisions in the body, it is less traumatizing and painful,  the length of hospital stay is actually reduced. For this reason, all of these procedures are referred to as minimally invasive surgical procedures.

In the history of laparoscopy, it was first performed by Cleymanna in 1991 [Clayman RV, Kavoussi LR, Figenshau RS, Chandhoke PS, Albala DM. Laparoscopic nephroureterectomy: initial clinical case report. Journal of Laparoendoscopic Surgery. 1991;1(6):343–3449].

 

There are several procedures performed laparoscopically at our institution:

  • Laparoscopic varicocelectomy

  • Laparoscopic resection of the renal cyst

  • Laparoscopic nephrectomy

  • Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy

  • Laparoscopic partial resection of the kidney

  • Laparoscopic nephroureterectomy

  • Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy

  • Laparoscopic corection of pelvic organ prolapse with or without hysterectomy and incontinence treatment

 

The ilustaration enclosed shows the extent of the scar and the large kidney that were removed from the patient. Undoubtedly, specialized instruments and energy resources are required for these kinds of procedures. Our patients can access all of them.

Undoubtedly, special education that wasn't offered in domestic institutions was attended.
