Adrenalectomy

Adrenalectomy is the surgical removal of one or both of the adrenal glands. This is one of the treatment options for adrenal gland tumours. Adrenalectomy can be done in three methods: minimally invasive, open surgery or cryoablation. Any of these methods will be chosen depending on the size and type of tumour or other conditions affecting the adrenal gland.

Procedure

  • Adrenalectomy is performed under general anaesthesia.
  • In open adrenalectomy, the surgeon makes an incision of about 6-12 inches in your abdomen and removes your adrenal gland.
  • In minimally invasive or laparoscopic adrenalectomy, the surgeon inserts a long tube with a camera (laparoscope) through small incisions made in your abdomen and removes your adrenal gland.
  • In cryoablation, the surgeon inserts a probe that freezes and destroys adrenal tumours, guided by CT imaging. This is mostly used for small tumours and when surgery carries a high risk.
