An operation to remove one of the two kidneys located at the back of the abdominal cavity is called a laparoscopic nephrectomy. The kidneys remove waste materials and extra fluid from the circulation to produce urine. The ureters carry urine from the kidneys into the bladder, where it is held until the person needs to use the restroom. During a laparoscopic nephrectomy, a whole kidney is removed via keyhole incisions made in the flank—the part of the body that lies between the hip and the ribs. A nephrectomy is typically performed for one of two reasons: either a non-functioning kidney or kidney cancer. When kidney cancer is present, a radical laparoscopic nephrectomy is performed. This involves removing the kidney and adrenal gland in its entirety, along with any surrounding fat and connected veins, in an effort to purge the body of malignancy. In more severe situations, it might be necessary to halt the affected kidney's ongoing bleeding.
