Using a laparoscope, the provider explores or removes one or both of the adrenal glands, which are two small organs located above the kidneys that secrete hormones to help regulate the immune system, metabolism, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure. The procedure covers different surgical approaches and biopsy when performed. The provider performs this procedure primarily for exploration or removal of small to medium sized benign or cancerous tumors of the adrenal glands.
