About this book

Since the first laparoscopic approach for a urologic tumor was performed in 1991, the field has evolved dramatically and minimally invasive surgery is today a significant surgical option for the treatment of patients with prostate and other urologic cancers. Laparoscopic Techniques in Urologic Oncology is a comprehensive technical manual of these current laparoscopic practices written by a panel of international contributors.

Laparoscopic Techniques in Urologic Oncology includes many illustrations documenting each step of each procedure, as well as descriptions of nuances and common pitfalls. By emphasizing successful techniques, this book will be of use to the surgeons wanting to hone their skills in laparoscopy and for residents just entering this highly demanding field.

Specific chapters include the following procedures:

  • Adrenal gland tumors (radical/partial adrenalectomy)
  • Bladder cancer (radical cystectomy and urinary diversion)
  • Kidney tumors (radical/partial nephrectomy)
  • Pelvic lymph node dissection
  • Prostate cancer (radical prostatectomy)
  • Testis cancer (retroperitoneal lymph node dissection)
  • Upper urinary tract cancers (nephro-uretectomy)

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Written by four pioneers in laparoscopic urologic surgery, this book’s 10 chapters illustrate various techniques used in urologic oncology. … The descriptions of these surgical procedures are designed to allow urologists the ability to offer minimally invasive techniques in the treatment of urologic malignancies. … Designed for urologic surgeons who want to expand their minimally invasive practice to more complex oncology procedures … . This is an excellent resource for laparoscopic surgeons interested in expanding their practice to minimally invasive urologic oncology techniques." (Peter Pinto, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2009)
