  • This book will present simplified, clear and well exposed reader-friendly material
  • Descriptions of the whole operation will be detailed step by step
  • There will be high quality pictures of the whole operation, starting with anatomic reviews of the retroperitoneum, the pre-operative investigations, the anesthesiological aspects, the robotic instruments and the surgical steps of robotic donor nephrectomy

Robotic Donor Nephrectomy - A Practical Guide is a user friendly manual aimed to give both novice and mature urologists a clear and comprehensive description of robot-assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy through a step-by-step approach. Novel techniques such as the Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site (LESS) surgery are examined and the editors also look at the well established multi-ports techniques using the da Vinci Surgical system.

Robotic Donor Nephrectomy - A Practical Guide will help young urologists gain better understanding of the techniques of robotic-assisted surgery, and support older urologists in ’crossing the border’ towards laparoscopic surgery, particularly for delicate procedures such as the donor nephrectomy.
