Laparoscopy and Robotic Adrenalectomy

Adrenal tumors are relatively rare but can cause significant problems including hypertension, excessive sweating, palpitations, weight gain, headaches and other symptoms as a result of hormone production from the adrenal mass. These “functional” or hormone-secreting tumors include pheochromocytoma, aldosteronoma, Cushing’s tumor and adrenal cancer.
