Purpose: Laparoscopic renal surgery in pediatric urology is moving forward at a slower pace than desired. To guide beginning surgeons in what to expect in their first years of surgical experience, we present our first 6 years of pediatric laparoscopic ablative renal surgery experience to highlight the changing laparoscopic surgical parameters during this interval.
