Robotic Surgery for Adrenal Glands

Robotic radical adrenalectomy involves the complete surgical removal of an adrenal gland. The adrenal glands are two triangle-shaped organs that sit on top of the kidneys and are responsible for producing a number of important hormones. An adrenal gland that develops a benign (non-cancerous) tumor and begins producing too much of any one hormone may require a radical adrenalectomy in order to avoid long-term health problems. In other cases, it may be possible to treat the condition by performing a partial adrenalectomy, in which just the tumor is excised while the rest of the adrenal gland is left intact.

With the assistance of the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, the latest evolution in robotics technology, surgeons can perform a minimally invasive radical adrenalectomy with unmatched precision and control. This superior visualization and precision is ideally suited to the delicate dissection and control of multiple feeding blood vessels required in radical adrenalectomy.

da Vinci radical adrenalectomy, which is offered at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachuseets, provides patients many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities
