Solid organ surgery is advised when doctors detect cancer or tumour in the solid organs of the patient’s body like adrenal glands, kidneys, spleen, pancreas. These are the organs which control the amount as well as distribution of water and food responsible for the human body to survive. Surgeons recommend laparoscopic solid organ surgery as it causes less pain and faster recovery.
Adrenalectomy : this surgery is performed to remove either one or both of the adrenal glands where a cancer or tumour is detected to have spread to kidney or lung. There are two options : an open surgery or a laparoscopic surgery.
Spleen : Spleen is responsible for the filtering of blood which strengthens the immune system apart from fighting the bacteria that cause pneumonia and meningitis. Patients need a surgery for spleen removal in case of blockage, hemolytic anaemia, malignancy. A surgery known as laparoscopic splenectomy is thus performed.
Kidneys : Sometimes a laparoscopic nephrectomy is performed for partial or entire removal of kidneys when the kidney is detected with cysts, renal failure, stones, nephritis, chronic kidney diseases, and diabetic nephropathy.
Pancreas : pancreatectomy is performed for the surgical removal of part or entire pancreas when the doctor detects cysts, tumour, islet cell tumour and cystic fibrosis.
Liver : hepactectomy is performed for surgical removal of liver. This may happen because of cancer, fatty liver, hepatitis.
Adrenal Glands : extreme variation of heart rate and blood pressure.
Spleen : patient’s platelets count becomes low
Kidneys : infection in the urinary tract, pain while urinating
Pancreas : inflammation, severe trauma, neoplasms
Liver : fatty liver
