Florida Surgeon Demonstrates Kidney Sparing Cancer Treatment in Live Surgical Webcast

Carey was invited to present the live surgical webcast because of superior patient outcomes and a number of studies he has published worldwide on the benefits of minimally invasive surgical techniques to urological patients. The procedure he demonstrated involved a high-risk elderly patient on blood thinners. After exploring several surgical options, he chose Dr. Carey and Sarasota Memorial because it was the only option that offered a minimally invasive treatment that preserved his kidney.

Traditionally, surgeons cut out the cancer by removing an entire kidney, lymph nodes and any suspicious cells in the surrounding area. But that, Carey says, can lead to complications and life altering health issues, especially if the cancer recurs in the remaining kidney. In contrast, he said, radiofrequency ablation utilizes heat energy to destroy the cancerous tissue at the exact site where it exists in the body, without compromising kidney function.

Because it is performed laparoscopically – using small incisions and scopes through which a small camera and instruments can be placed into the body – the ablation procedure results in less pain and scarring, less risk of blood loss and infection and a faster recovery.    

Carey was selected to perform the live surgery webcast in part because of the research and patient outcomes reported in an award-winning 2007 Journal of Endourology report he authored. In that report, which earned first prize at the World Congress of Endourology in 2006, he documented the successful ablation of 104 renal masses, 40 percent of which were greater than 3 cm. There were no blood transfusions, no intra- or peri-operative deaths, no patients who pro
