Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that involves the introduction into the abdomen of a small camera and suitable surgical instruments.
The interventions commonly performed by Dr. Chaabane aim to:
Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy; it is a curative treatment for prostate cancer. The advantages of this surgical approach are: less intraoperative bleeding, a shorter postoperative stay and a resumption of daily activity and faster continence.
Laparoscopic nephrectomy. This intervention is indicated in cases of kidney cancer or destroyed (non-functional) kidney. Apart from the contraindications, the laparoscopic route represents the first route recommended by learned societies. After laparoscopic ablation, the kidney is removed through a small incision in the lower abdomen, which gives much less postoperative pain compared to the conventional surgical route. This allows a shorter post-operative stay (2 to 3 days) and a quick return to daily activity.
Sacrocolpopexy : This technique is indicated in the event of organ descent in women (Prolapse). It consists of returning the bladder, uterus and vagina to their anatomical position. A specific prosthesis is then used for this intervention.
Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy is a technique of choice, especially in young women, with a success rate of 80%.
Laparoscopic adrenalectomy. This technique is indicated in the event of a secreting tumor of the adrenal gland or a suspected cancer of this gland.
The laparoscopic route is the technique of choice for this surgery.
or varicocelectomy. The laparoscopic approach is interesting especially in cases of bilateral varicocele.
the ligature of the spermatic vein (s) is done with titanium clips before being cut.
This intervention is done on an outpatient basis (same day exit from the clinic).
The results of this technique are equivalent to other surgical techniques.
