About this book

This book presents the state of the art across the entire field of pediatric robotic surgery, including thoracic, abdominal, oncologic, gynecologic, and urologic procedures. Indications for each type of robotic surgery are clearly set out and technical aspects are described in detail, illustrating the patient’s position and explaining the robotic assessment and the optimal use of robotic instruments. Anesthetic issues and the management of robotic complications are discussed, and managerial aspects are also considered, with provision of helpful suggestions on how to approach robotic surgery in each pediatric department. For surgeons who wish to start using the pediatric robotic approach, simple illustrations of robotic assessment and principles of robotic surgery are included. Pediatric robotic surgery has undergone significant development in recent years, and the technology is now applied to a variety of pediatric diseases beyond urology. This book has been written by a group of world-renowned pioneers of pediatric robotic surgery and will appeal to pediatric surgeons of all disciplines, to residents, and to hospital general managers and medical directors.

About the authors

Professor Girolamo Mattioli is Director of the Pediatric Surgery School,  University of Genoa,  and Head of the Pediatric Surgery Unit at the Giannina Gaslini Institute in Genoa, Italy. He has performed more than 5000 surgical procedures in children, 3000 of them using a minimally invasive approach. He is the author of more than 300 publications and a member of the principal pediatric surgical societies (EUPSA, IPEG, SICP). He is a reviewer for the Journal of Pediatric Surgery, Journal of Urology, and Journal of Laparoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques. Professor Mattioli’s research fields cover all aspects of pediatric minimally invasive surgery, and he has a particular interest in morbidity and mortality and urology research. 
Dr. Paul Petralia graduated in Medicine and Surgery and subsequently specialized in Hygiene and Preventive Medicine with a special focus on hospital organization. He first worked in health management in rehabilitation and outpatient facilities, before acquiring the skills required to become a managing director. He was appointed managing director of IRCCS Gaslini Children’s Hospital in July 2010 and in 2011 was elected President of the Italian Children's Hospitals. He has directed simultaneously many non-profit organizations and has extensive experience as a coordinator and national and regional representative. He has been a member of the board of directors of several organizations, including the Galliera Hospital in Genoa. He is also a journalist and Adjunct Professor of Health Organization on two degree courses and one school of specialization in the Faculty of Medicine, Genoa University.

Reviews

“This book is an attempt to review and critically analyze the data available on surgical procedures and outcomes using the da Vinci robot system. … Certainly, the audience includes resident and students, but the primary readers will be practicing pediatric surgeons who are either contemplating the initial use/purchase of a da Vinci system or robotic surgeons attempting to expand or develop their skills. The book does a good job with the available data.” (David C. Yu, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2018)
