Kidney disease treatment in Germany: minimally invasive surgery

Friedrichshafen center in Germany offers minimally invasive surgical methods of kidney disease treatment. They reduce the risks of post-operative complications, speed up the recovery process. Instead of dissecting the soft tissues a surgeon makes 2-6 punctures up to 1 cm in diameter. All manipulations with laparoscopic instruments and camera are performed via these small incisions.

Our clinic in Germany offers ultra-modern kidney cancer treatment. Da Vinci robot allows performing highly precise kidney surgery with minimal traumatization. A surgeon can see the tissues highly magnified on the screen, performing precise manipulations by robot's instruments.

Kidney Decapsulation

The doctors of our clinic in Germany apply kidney decapsulation for the diseases like acute pyelonephritis and paranephritis. These diseases are accompanied with renal pressure boost. That is why a surgeon removes the organ's fibrous capsule that improves the blood flow and lymph drainage.

Nephrotomy in kidney diseases

Nephrotomy is indicated for kidney stones treatment. Such treatment implies the dissection of organ's parenchyma. Total nephrotomy is used in the treatment of big coral stones formations, while the partial nephrotomy is applied to remove small concretions that require an incision in specific part of a kidney. After removing the stone deposits are removed, a surgeon closes the kidney tissue leaving the drainage tube.
