LAPAROSCOPIC DONOR NEPHRECTOMY (Gold Standard For Treating Kidney Failure)

In a laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, tiny incisions are used and the kidney is removed using a scope or camera and special miniaturized surgical instruments. The procedure is, similar to one used to remove a gall bladder. This minimally invasive procedure has a shorter recovery period and the complication rate. In addition, the quality and function of the transplanted kidneys are excellent. Laparoscopy can be done safely in donor with multiple vessel. Donor is discharged from hospital within 24 hours.


There are a number of distinct advantages including:

  • Lower incidence of delayed graft function
  • Improved patient and graft survival
  • Increased cost effectiveness.
