Laparoscopic adrenalectomy provides patients with a safe and effective way to remove a diseased or cancerous adrenal gland. There are benign as well as malignant forms of adrenal tumors. Many of the benign adrenal tumors secrete hormones such as cortisol, aldosterone, epinephrine, norepinephrine and can result in high blood pressure, facial flushing, weight gain, headaches, palpitations as well as other symptoms. Adrenal cancer, although rare, can grow to a large size. Most benign and malignant adrenal tumors can be removed laparoscopically.

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is a minimally invasive technique, which provides patients with less discomfort and equivalent results when compared to the larger incision required with traditional open surgery. When compared to conventional open surgery, laparoscopic adrenalectomy has resulted in significantly less post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay, earlier return to work and daily activities, a more favorable cosmetic result and outcomes identical to that of open surgery.
