D2 lymphadenectomy is still considered a controversial topic in treatment of gastric cancer, but is gaining favor in Western surgical therapy. This is a surgical technique video demonstrating the laparoscopic D2 lymphadenectomy for gastric cancer performed at our institution. All nodal stations are identified and dissected. We believe that the laparoscopic approach provides superior visualization to the traditional open procedure allowing appropriate nodal and oncologic resection.
