About this book

Operative urology has evolved in recent years to include laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgical procedures, which have resulted in significant improvements in quality of life-related outcome. Nevertheless, training methods in urologic laparoscopy and robot-assisted surgery vary considerably, and a structured training scheme is required to enable the modern urologist to adapt to and make optimal use of these techniques. Accordingly, the main goal of this surgical atlas is to guide the urologist carefully through all the standard laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures. Each procedure is presented in detail with numerous supporting endoscopic images and diagrams. The reader is thereby acquainted with the different surgical steps and will acquire the knowledge necessary for reliable reproduction of the techniques in clinical practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Describes and illustrates over 45 different extirpative and reconstructive urologic surgeries that can be completed laparoscopically or with laparoscopic robot assistance. … It provides very basic information, such as trocar placement and methods of laparoscopic access (transperitoneal and retroperitoneal). … This is an excellent surgical atlas for both novice and advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgeons. It is comprehensive and well organized and illustrated. It should be a welcome addition to any laparoscopic surgeon’s collection of operative manuals.” (Scott Gabriel Hubosky, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2011)

“The editors of this textbook and their contributors intended to create an atlas of laparoscopic and robotic procedures. A step-by-step description was made for each procedure, accompanied by technical comments. Preoperative and postoperative management of patients were briefly described in each paragraph. … This thorough textbook is well-illustrated and provides the reader with an excellent survey of laparoscopic and robotic surgery.” (European Eurology Today, October/November, 2011)
