Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book illustrates various common laparoscopic procedures and the potential difficulties laparoscopic surgeons could encounter. … The intended audience includes residents, fellows, and beginning laparoscopic urologists. … this book would be appropriate for urologists with either minimal or significant laparoscopic experience. … It addresses those at the beginner’s level as well as those with significant experience, and it differs from other books of its kind in the way it directly addresses challenging situations and offers practical solutions.” (Scott Gabriel Hubosky, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2012)
