Kidney

There has always been a shortage of kidneys for people with severe kidney disease requiring a new, transplanted kidney. In 1996 we were the first to perform this procedure in the Northeast of the United States and now have one of the largest experiences anywhere in the world.

Kidney donation by laparoscopy is rapidly becoming the method of choice for living donor transplantation. By avoiding the lengthy, painful incision of regular "open" surgery the donor is able to leave hospital, usually the day after surgery and return to work and other normal activities far more quickly. Donors are usually referred to us for evaluation by the transplant team caring for the recipient, but occasionally potential donors seek us out because of our expertise in laparoscopic kidney removal.

Stemming from our experience with kidney donor surgery, we are now performing laparoscopic hand-assist nephrectomy for massively enlarged polycystic kidneys that require removal because of their size or the symptoms they cause.
