Abstract

Laparoscopy has become commonplace in the management of genitourinary malignancies and, in some institutions, has largely replaced open surgery as the primary treatment method for renal tumors. Outside of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy, other modalities, such as nephron-sparing partial nephrectomy and energy-based ablative procedures, have been extended to laparoscopy. In this article, we present our experience and review the literature regarding the utility of laparoscopy in the management of renal tumors.
