Nephrectomy is a surgery performed to remove a part or entire kidney. It can be performed in 3 different ways.

  • ACEi (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors)
  • ARBs (angiotensin receptor blockers)
  • Radial nephrectomy – entire kidney is removed. layer of fat around the kidney, the tube (ureter) that drains urine from the kidney to your bladder, the adrenal gland, and nearby lymph nodes
  • Partial nephrectomy – only the affected part of the kidney is removed
  • Simple nephrectomy – only the kidney is removed

The surgery can be of two types – open surgery or laparoscopic surgery.

  • In open surgery kidney is removed through a big cut and a scar will be left by the incision which fades with time.
  • In laparoscopic surgery, a thin lighted tube called laparoscope and other surgical tools are inserted through incisions and the kidney is removed. This process will leave smaller scars than the open surgery.
