What Are the Surgical Treatment Options For Kidney Cancer?

There are many treatment options for kidney cancer available in Delhi India. The cure of Kidney cancer depends on the stage and extent of tumor. In early and even in advanced stages the diseased kidney has to be removed surgically. As it continues to throw cancerous cells into the system.

WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF RADICAL NEPHRECTOMY? The disadvantage of radical nephrectomy is that it entails complete removal of the kidney. If you are diabetic or hypertensive and at risk of loss to another kidney, this places you at a risk of kidney failure. And there is always a small risk of getting cancer in the other kidney too. The solution to this partial nephrectomy or nephron sparing surgery.

OPEN RADICAL NEPHRECTOMY OR LAPAROSCOPIC RADICAL NEPHRECTOMY? Open Radical Nephrectomy is the removal of the kidney via an incision in the flank or below the chest (subcostal). It is necessary for larger or bulky kidney tumors. But it leaves a large scar, is a little more painful and may cause hernia later. Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is the standard of care today. Via two small incisions and 5 mm pfannensteil incision the kidney can be delivered with minimal scarring and excellent pain relief. The choice of approach depends on the size of the kidney tumor, and is best decided by your urologist. Do not choose laparoscopic when not indicated as it can compromise results.
