Laparoscopic ureterolithotomy for a large 2.5cm proximal ureteral stone. After mobilization of the colon, identification of the ureter and dissection of the inflammatory region when the stone is impacted. Opening of ureter using cold cut in order to obtain a neat incision and prevent thermal damage to the ureter.
Dr Fouad Khoury, a referral urologist in Lebanon and the Middle East, performing pyeloplasty for UPJ stenosis. This video features step by step approach along with captions for successful and smooth completion of pyeloplasty operation, with antegrade intra operative JJ insertion.
Laparoscopic NephroU done for management of upper tract TCC that was causing extensive bleeding and anemia for the patient. Due to advanced patient’s age (94 years old) and comorbidities, only a proximal ureterectomy was done after making sure that distal ureter is free of tumor in order to decrease operative time and surgical morbidity.
Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy, operated by Dr Fouad Khoury, in which he’s performing a laparoscopic pelvic organ prolapse repair. This video features anterior plane dissection for Grade 4 bladder prolapse using polyester mesh placement and fixation to sacral promontory.
Laparoscopic surgery for adrenal gland became the standard procedure for removal of adrenal tumors. When done in expert hands, even large tumors can be safely performed through this minimally invasive approach. It provides patients with less discomfort and equivalent oncologic results when compared to larger incisions required with traditional open surgeries.
Laparoscopic right adrenalectomy of a large 8cm tumor compressing the Vena Cava. After dissection and isolation of adrenal gland from vital surrounding structures mainly the Vena Cava, hand assisted technique was used at the end in order to detach the adrenal from the posterior bed.
Dr Fouad Khoury discussing minimally invasive approach to repair pelvic organ prolapses such as cystocele and rectocele. The repair can be done either through a laparoscopic or robotic approach with a success rate higher than 90 percent when done in expert hands.
