Laparoscopic surgeries are performed to minimize the surgical trauma to the patient and ensure faster recovery. As in the normal open surgeries, a wide incision is made and this leads to blood loss and thus more trauma to the internal organs.
Whereas, the laparoscopic surgery will have just small holes for the passage of tiny instruments inside the body and the repair is done under the guidance of a camera.
There is a tube that connects the kidney to the urethra. Urine passes through kidney to the bladder via this tube called as Ureter. Sometimes this tube gets narrowed or blocked thus leading to the improper passage of urine and kidney infections as well.
So the procedure to remove this narrowed part of ureter tube is known as Pyeloplasty.
In the Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty, the whole abdomen is not incised but some small holes are made and laparoscopic instrument enters through them. This narrowed part of the ureter is removed and the two ends are then widely sutured so that no narrowing can occur in future.
This is the surgery performed to remove a kidney by a laparoscope. The surgery is carried out due to following conditions:
You will spend just 2 to 4 days in the hospital for the surgery.
Don’t eat or drink anything 6 to 8 hours prior to the surgery.
Discuss all the medications that you are currently taking so that Dr. Vineet can decide which one to stop prior to surgery. Don’t stop any medications abruptly without asking your doctor.
Also, the patient is advised not to eat anything after midnight, prior to the procedure.
You are advised not to lift any heavy weights or strenuous activities for 2-3 weeks after surgery. Also, you are advised not to miss your follow up visits
