Laparoscopic Radical Nephrectomy : Removal of cancer affected kidney for
very large tumors.
Robotic Partial Nephrectomy : Removal of part of the cancerous kidney for small to moderately large tumors.
Upper tract urothelial cancer (Ureteric cancers) :
Laparoscopic/Robotic Nephro-ureterectomy: Removal of kidney and cancerous ureter along with bladder cuff and surrounding lymph nodes. Kidney sparing procedures: Preserving the kidney by excising only the cancerous segment of the ureter or flexible endoscopic removal of tumor. We consider such procedures only in case of low grade, small and superficial tumors.
TURBT : Endoscopic resection of bladder tumors or laser fulguration of tiny lesions
Robotic or open Radical cystectomy : Removal cancerous bladder and surrounding lymph nodes. Urine diversion is done by ileal conduit (urine tubes or ureters are attached to a segment of small intestine and this is brought out through the tummy wall as stoma to which a urine bag is applied). In selected patients neobladder can be created where intestinal segment is used to create a reservoir similar urinary bladder, facilitating urine passage naturally.
Robotic Radical Prostatectomy : Robot assisted removal of cancerous prostate along with
surrounding lymph nodes, followed by anastomosing urinary bladder to urethra to maintain the continuity
of urinary tract. We routinely practice certain techniques to avoid urinary leaks and positive surgical
Channel TURP : This is a palliative procedure, where only the obstructing part of the prostate is removed by resectoscope. This is performed in case of advanced prostate carcinoma which is not amenable for complete surgical removal.
Penectomy : Surgical removal of entire cancerous penis is called Total penectomy. However partial penectomy is more commonly done procedure, in which only a part of penis is removed enabling the patient to urinate in standing position. We also frequently perform various penile sparing procedures such as glansectomy (removal of glans penis only) and excision of cancerous lesion alone in case of very small tumors.
Groin node dissections (Complete ilioinguinal or modified inguinal node dissection) : Penile cancer usually spreads to groin nodes followed by pelvic lymph nodes. These nodes are surgically removed depending on the extent of nodal involvement.
High inguinal Orchiectomy : Surgical removal of cancer affected testis via groin incision.
Retroperitoneal Lymph node dissection (RPLND) : Usually testis cancer spreads to lymph nodes in the abdomen. Removal of such lymph nodes is called RPLND.
