Laparoscopic Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (RPLND)

Laparoscopic Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (RPLND) is the removal of lymph nodes to remove and stage testicular cancer. This minimally invasive procedure removes the lymph nodes that may become cancerous when you have cancer of the testis or renal cell cancer.

How is RPLND Performed?

Your surgeon will make several small incisions and insert the laparoscope and other tiny surgical instruments into the lower abdomen. This allows access to remove the appropriate lymph nodes by manipulating some of the internal organs.
