Surgical options for open adrenalectomy.


:We are fortunate that our ability to diagnose the specific adrenal entities that mandate a surgical approach is extremely accurate. The combination of analytical methodology to measure the appropriate adrenocortical and medullary hormone production and the radiology techniques for localization are superb. The management of these adrenal disorders with precise surgical precision following localization is highly successful, resulting in a reversal of both metabolic abnormalities and the hypertension that often accompanies these diseases. Indeed, this has become a true success story with the evolution of these different techniques over the past 50 years.
