Which operations of the kidney can be done by laparoscopy?

For most of kidney operations, laparoscopy has already become the operation of choice. These are –

  • Removal of Non - Functioning kidney due to any cause.(Nephrectomy)
  • Removal of kidney due to cancer
  • Removal of PART of kidney due to small cancer
  • Correction of obstruction leading to swelling of kidney – Pyeloplasty for UPJ obstruction.
  • Chyluria,
  • Large Cysts,
  • Special situations for stone like large ureteric stone.

In 21st century, the question is not “Why laparoscopic surgery” but to ask the surgeon “ WHY OPEN SURGERY”
