Reviews

From the reviews:

"This manual offers a relatively narrow depiction of many commonly performed laparoscopic urology procedures. … Urologists or surgeons who are willing to devote time and effort to learning laparoscopy are the intended audience. … It could serve as a primer for residents or attendings new to laparoscopy." (Scott Gabriel Hubosky, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)

"Aim is to guide urologists who are familiarising themselves with the various laparoscopic procedures in urology. … All chapters are well illustrated and include high-quality photos and figures. Many boxes show technical tips. … This manual represents an excellent tool for beginners since the technical step-by-step descriptions are very concise and practical." (Paul Meria, European Urology Today, Vol. 30, April/May, 2009)
