Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection

Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection treatment is performed on certain types of testicular cancer. The surgery may need to be performed using a standard incision or it may be performed laparoscopically.  Laparoscopic treatment usually means the patient may go home after one day in the hospital.

Physicians at the Urology Academic Practice were among the first to show that laparoscopically performed surgery usually results in good cancer control when performed on the proper patient.
