Simple Nephrectomy.

Medical Program of Simple Nephrectomy Surgery by Minimum Access

Nephrectomy is a surgical procedure that is done to remove all or part of the kidney.
Radical or total nephrectomy. During a radical nephrectomy, the urologist removes the entire kidney and often additional structures, such as part of the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder, ureter, or other nearby structures, such as the adrenal gland or lymph nodes.
Partial nephrectomy. In a partial nephrectomy, also called kidney preservation surgery or nephron sparing surgery, the surgeon removes diseased tissue from a kidney and preserves healthy tissue.
In most cases, a nephrectomy is done to treat kidney cancer or to remove a non-cancerous or benign tumor. In some cases, a nephrectomy is done to treat a diseased or severely damaged kidney.
The urological surgeon can perform a nephrectomy through a single incision in the abdomen or side or through a series of small incisions in the abdomen in which a camera and small instruments are used, called laparoscopic nephrectomy.
The most common reason why a urologist performs a nephrectomy is to remove a tumor from the kidney. Usually, these tumors are cancerous, but they may also be cancerous, benign. Sometimes, it is necessary to perform a nephrectomy due to other kidney diseases.
In general, nephrectomy is a safe procedure. However, as with any surgery, nephrectomy carries a potential risk of complications, such as the following:
