Reviews

From the reviews:

“Editor Abaza and 35 co-authors provided a survey of current procedures related to kidney and the upper urinary tract. … This textbook should facilitate the learning process of most beginners in robotics and provide experienced surgeons with some interesting tips and tricks.” (European Urology Today, December 2013 - January 2014)

“This manual describes urological robotic surgery for benign and malignant disease of the kidneys and ureter as well as robotic lymph node dissection. … With the rapid expansion of robotic surgery in urology, this is a timely and important book. The audience includes urological surgeons who are adopting robotic surgical procedures in their practice and urology trainees learning robotic surgery. … This reading is mandatory for anyone interested in learning and mastering these surgeries.” (Ilia Zeltser, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2013)
