Patients who are contemplating donating their kidney will find this video to be informative about the surgical process called a laparoscopic nephrectomy in a living donor. This is a minimally invasive technique that uses a camera and other instruments to remove the kidney through 3-5 holes in the abdomen that typically lasts 3 hours. The video will provide a visual guide with narration of the surgery in a patient-friendly language to help better understand the operation.
