About this book

Written entirely by surgical urologists, Surgical Management of Urolithiasis: Percutaneous, Shockwave and Ureteroscopy presents a comprehensive overview of the past, present, and future of surgical techniques, with a focus on educating urologists on the full spectrum of stone procedures.  In addition to the technical issues, detailed complications are described. Basic as well as advanced techniques are presented in both a didactic and visual mode with representative endoscopic images and radiographs. Recent advancements which are not routinely a core component of surgical training programs are also covered in detail.

Compact and extensively illustrated, Surgical Management of Urolithiasis: Percutaneous, Shockwave and Ureteroscopy is a unique and valuable resource in the field of surgical urolithiasis, essential both for those currently in training and for those already in clinical practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Editors S. Nakada and M. Pearle collaborated with nearly 30 experts and provided the reader with a comprehensive textbook that aimed to focus on minimally invasive treatments of urinary stones and the technical challenges related to such treatments. … This practical textbook … is well-illustrated and provides the reader with an excellent survey which is useful for both young and experienced urologists.” (European Urology Today, December 2013 - January 2014)

“The authors aim to provide an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the surgical management of nephrolithiasis, including technical details and management of complications. … a useful resource for those currently in training and those already in clinical practice. … the book is valuable for general urologists as well as subspecialists who focus primarily on complex stone disease. … It is a valuable resource for any urologist treating patients with nephrolithiasis, both basic and complex cases. This concise, evidence-based book is a must-have in contemporary practice.” (Kelly Healy, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2013)
