Adrenal Tumors and Posterior Retroperitoneoscopic Adrenalectomy (PRA): A Case Study

In this case study, Sanziana Roman, MD, an endocrine surgeon who sees patients with disorders of endocrine systems—including thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal gland—discusses a patient’s treatment for a tumor in the retroperitoneum, near the adrenal gland. In consultation with his endocrinologist, surgery was performed minimally invasively through a unique posterior approach that enabled preservation of the kidney and adrenal gland, and allowed for safe removal of the tumor.
