Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Sealing keyhole surgery incisions. Close-up of the hands of a surgeon who is applying surgical glue to seal incisions made in a patient's abdomen during keyhole surgery. This allows for improved healing compared to sutures or staples. This is being done towards the end of an operation to remove a cancerous kidney. The kidney was excised using laparoscopy, where small incisions (keyhole ports) in the abdomen were used to insert surgical tools to operate on and remove the kidney. This is minimally invasive and less traumatic than opening up the abdomen. The operation also removed the ureter, and used robotic assistance.
