Invasive Surgery for Kidney Cancer Gurgaon

The use of minimally invasive techniques has transformed the treatment of renal disease. Minimally invasive surgery isn't right for everyone. But for those who are, it means less time in the hospital, less pain medication, less scarring, and a quicker recovery.

At our health institute, the experts have performed plenty of partial as well as full nephrectomy by making use of the advanced technologies. Using invasive surgery for kidney cancer results in minimal blood loss, faster recovery, and also reduces all kinds of side effects. 

Among the four minimally invasive methods are the following:

Laparoscopic Surgery :- Developed as a less invasive alternative to traditional open surgery, with a speedier recovery time and a more pleasing aesthetic outcome. One or more small incisions are made in the belly, and an endoscope and video camera are inserted into the body through these incisions.

Robotic Procedure :-  Like laparoscopic surgery, however, two or three robotic arms are inserted into the patient's abdomen to aid in the surgical procedure. Standard laparoscopic devices cannot move in the direction these little arms can. Some reconstructive kidney procedures may benefit from this method, but it isn't ideal for all procedures.

Percutaneous Procedure :-  The kidney is accessible through a single puncture wound in the skin rather than using surgical equipment. X-ray (ultrasound, CT, or fluoroscopy) guidance is used to insert instruments or probes into the kidney. No big incisions will be required, and the patient will have a quicker recovery time.

Ureteroscopic Procedure :-  It is possible to do an ureteroscopy without puncturing the skin, as the scope is introduced through its canal (a normal passageway). Compared to the percutaneous technique, this procedure uses relatively smaller scopes (2.5 mm).

Using Robotic Surgery to Treat Kidney Cancer Has Many Benefits

Less blood loss (and subsequently a reduced need for blood transfusions) means less scarring (internally and externally) and less time in the hospital, which translates to a quicker return to normal activities and a shorter recovery period overall. This is true for the majority of robotically assisted procedures.

We can perform lymph node dissections with the robot that is on par with or better than those performed by the vast majority of skilled open surgeons. It is highly suggested that you visit with a Temple robotic surgeon if your urologist says you are not a candidate for minimally invasive or kidney-sparing surgery.

Minimally Invasive Therapies

The treatment of kidney cancer can also include non-surgical and minimally invasive methods, depending on the particular patient's needs. To do percutaneous radiofrequency ablation, we use specially developed, image-guided needles that we put into the kidney. We utilize these needles to administer radio waves to reduce the kidney tumor.

It is possible to starve a tumor of oxygen by injecting a substance into its bloodstream to prevent it from reaching the tumor. As a result, the tumor shrinks or disappears completely. If we suspect you may not be able to tolerate surgery or ablation, we may embolize tumors. Before either surgery or ablation, we can utilize this method to stop bleeding.
