to be done by the patient.”
Following traditional surgery, pa
tients remain hospitalized for four to
seven days, Gill said.
He said some patients experienced
pain and discomfort from the opera
tion from two months to a year until
the incision healed.
In the Jan. 30 operation, the same
kidney removal surgery was per
formed, Gill said, but no muscle tissue
was cut. Gill said he and Grune worked
through the small incisions to separate
muscle fibers instead.
Using a laparoscope for kidney re
moval makes surgery more difficult
than a typical removal, he said. As a
result, few hospitals currently perform
“It’s clearly harder to do,” he said.
‘You need special training for this.”
But the procedure holds benefits In
recovery time for the patient,Jie said.
“As far as the patient is concerned,
it’s definitely a much easier operation,”
The Omaha patient was released in
good condition from Clarkson Hospi
tal the following day, Gill said.
He is on a dialysis machine, which
does the kidneys’ job of filtering im
purities from blood. He also is on a
waiting list for a transplant but can re
turn to work and other normal activi
ties today, Gill said.
Rodney Frizzell, who promotes
1Q3.7-FM,KXKT and 93.3-FM The
Point radio stations in Omaha, said he
also had two cancerous kidneys re
moved in laparoscope surgery.
Frizzell said he recovered quickly,
returned to work in 10 days and was
doing rigorous exercise in four to six
weeks. His colleagues at the radio sta
tions were surprised, he said.
“They’re calling me superman over
here,” Frizzell said.
Frizzell said he now plans to par
ticipate in the World Transplant Games
this September in Sydney, Australia.
He will compete in bicycle races and
track and field events, he said.
Because of his quick recovery time,
Frizzell said he recommends the
laparoscopic procedure to anyone who
needs an organ removed. Although he
said the nurses and doctors were great,
the reduced hospital stay was impor
“Who likes to stay in the hospital?”
No one enjoys pain, either, he said.
After his second kidney removal, he
was off painkillers in two days.
“It worked out really well,” Frizzell
Gill said the procedure was suc
cessful for both patients.
Not everyone is a candidate for the
procedure, he said. But for some pa
tients who require organ removal, Gill
said, the result of laparoscopic re
moval could be “beautiful.”
