Patient Testimonial for Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy

Testimonial by Mrs. Aida Tome Ricardo Lazaro

Treatment for: Pheochromocytoma
Treated by: Dr. K. Sreekanth
Patient location: Mozambique

Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor that develops in the adrenal glands. It is usually benign but it can also be cancerous. These tumors produce excess hormones like adrenaline and noradrenaline, leading to symptoms such as high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, headaches, sweating, and anxiety. Diagnosis involves blood and urine tests to detect hormone levels, and imaging scans like CT or MRI to locate the tumor. Treatment typically involves surgical removal of the tumor to control hormone secretion and manage symptoms.

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove the adrenal gland containing the pheochromocytoma. In this procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions in the abdomen and uses a laparoscope (a thin tube with a camera) and specialized instruments to visualize and remove the adrenal gland. The advantages of laparoscopic adrenalectomy include smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, and potentially less post-operative pain compared to traditional open surgery. However, there are risks and potential complications, such as bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding organs, or conversion to open surgery in complex cases. Patients considering this procedure should discuss the benefits and risks with their healthcare provider to make an informed decision.

Mrs. Aida Tome Ricardo Lazaro from Mozambique successfully underwent Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy for Pheochromocytoma at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. K. Sreekanth, Sr. Consultant Surgical Oncologist.
