Cancerous growths in one or both adrenal glands may prescribe the need to surgically remove them.
Our surgeons will always choose the best procedure for your individual condition. Depending on your condition we may use a minimally invasive technique such as a laparoscopy, which employs a tiny video camera, inserted through a small cut in the skin, to allow the surgeon to see inside your body and perform the procedure. Laparoscopy may involve making several tiny openings in your body to insert instruments to perform the adrenalectomy.
Laparoscopic surgery provides faster recovery with smaller scars and less risk of hernias or pain from nerve damage during the operation.
