Specialty surgeon complete packaged procedure for laparoscopic nephrectomy.
This procedure provides patients with a safe and effective way to remove a diseased or cancerous kidney. It is a minimally invasive technique, which provides patients with less discomfort and equivalent results when compared to the larger incision required with traditional open surgery. When compared to conventional open surgery, laparoscopic nephrectomy has resulted in significantly less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays, earlier return to work and daily activities, a more favorable cosmetic result, and outcomes identical to that of open surgery.
Laparoscopic nephrectomy surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), bandaid surgery, or keyhole surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm) as opposed to the larger incisions needed in laparotomy.
The treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
