Treatment for Kidney diseases

Surgery is the main treatment for most kidney cancers. The chances of surviving kidney cancer without having surgery are small. Depending on the stage and location of the cancer and other factors, surgery may remove either the cancer along with some of the surrounding kidney tissue (known as a partial nephrectomy), or the entire kidney (known as a radical nephrectomy). The adrenal gland (the small gland that sits on top of each kidney) and fatty tissue around the kidney may be removed as well. Regenerative medicine refers to a group of biomedical approaches to clinical therapies that may involve the use of stem cells. The study of laparoscopy in managing patients with abdominal symptoms from autosomal dominant Polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

From April 1993 to July 1995, four patients with ADPKD underwent seven laparoscopic procedures: five cyst decortications were performed in two patients using a laparoscopic ultrasound unit and two laparoscopic nephrectomies were performed in two patients with end-stage renal failure. The mean operative time was 207 minutes for laparoscopic cyst decortication and 272 minutes for laparoscopic nephrectomy. Many people feel that a successful kidney transplant provides a better quality of life because it may mean greater freedom, more energy and a less strict diet.
