Laparoscopic renal surgery for a variety of indications in children is safe, feasible, and slowly becoming the standard of care in certain clinical situations. Laparoscopic radical and partial nephrectomies for benign diseases are the most common renal procedures performed either through the transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach. Calyceal diverticulectomy, nephrolithotomy, and cyst decortications are additional laparoscopic renal procedures performed in children.
