Private Adrenal Gland Surgery
Professor Lloyd has performed more than 200 adrenalectomies. He has one of the largest personal series in the UK
Adrenal gland tumours are rare but can cause significant concern and clinical problems. Booking an appointment to discuss the pros and cons of surgery couldn’t be easier. We could have you feeling better within a matter of weeks.
Remember, with an NHS specialist, you might have to wait several months for an appointment or even surgery, with absolutely no guarantee it will be done on time. Private surgery offers almost immediate care with your own hospital room and expert care throughout.
Laparoscopic adrenalectomy can be a relatively straight forward procedure and often done as a day case

Adrenal tumours are rare and most are benign (non-cancerous). However, there are two main types of adrenal gland cancer – malignant phaeochromoctyoma and adrenocortical carcinoma.
Surgery to remove phaeochromocytoma can be done using laparoscopic or open surgery, while the main treatments for adrenal cortical cancer (ACC) are surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Professor Lloyd is a very experienced adrenal surgeon with particular expertise in removing phaeochromocytomas working closely with his consultant anaesthetists who work in intensive care. He would be very happy to offer an initial private consultation.

A laparoscopic adrenalectomy involves removal of an adrenal gland using the ‘keyhole’ (laparoscopic) surgical method. It is performed under a general anaesthetic and the most commonly used method of adrenal gland removal because there is often reduced blood loss, less pain and fewer complications than the open method, as well as a much shorter recovery time.
With such small incisions, scarring is kept to an absolute minimum and will generally fade with time. Complications are uncommon and the whole procedure can be undertaken in less than an hour, which means you should be able to go home the very same day and be fully recovered in around 7-10 days.
"Glenn was able to resume training and for the first time in two years, run and kick freely. The end result was his best season ever as Albion won League One and he scored 22 goals. Now it was the adulation of the Seagulls’ fans echoing around the ground."
``Undergoing surgery is a daunting prospect for most people. I am dedicated to providing my patients with the best possible care, and I believe that understanding the process is as vital to the service I deliver as the diagnosis and surgery itself.``Professor David LLoyd, MB, BS (Lond), FRCS (England), MD (Leics)
