Lap. Nephrectomy / Radical Nephrectomy

Lap. Nephrectomy / Radical Nephrectomy Overview

  • Nephrectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a part of the entire kidney.
  • When the urologic surgeon removes the entire kidney, or the additional structures such as the ureter, or adjacent structures like the adrenal gland, or lymph nodes it is the radical nephrectomy.
  • If the surgeon removes the diseased kidney and leaves the healthy tissue in place it is the laparoscopic or partial nephrectomy.
  • The incision is made in the abdomen to treat kidney cancer or to remove the non-cancerous tumor using a camera and surgical instruments.

Focused On Providing The Best Possible Treatment To Our Patients

We Have Created Our Care Practice Specially To Fit Your Needs

From trouble sleeping to work stress to anxiety to depression, we all have difficulty managing our emotions at times. It’s part of being human. And addressing these issues is a vital part of what we do as a primary care practice, because your emotional well-being is essential to your overall health and wellness.

We’ve redesigned the doctor’s office experience to fit your life, put you at ease, and treat you as a whole person. We create safe and inviting spaces,

ask meaningful questions, give you time to talk, and listen without judgment. Then we work with you on a plan to help you feel your best — whether you want to sleep better, feel calmer, worry less, or get a better handle on your mood.

To continue shedding a light on mental health issues, we teamed up with the award-winning musicians from Bear and a Banjo to create a song showing people they’re not alone. See how the project came to life in the video above — and if you’re struggling, we can help.
