This updated volume provides a concise evidence based overview of the field of contemporary urological practice. There are new chapters covering urologic imaging, the upper tract urothelial carcinoma, the treatment of adult male hormonal disorders, the management of urethral stricture disease, and the treatment of renal cancer. The anatomy and physiology of the urinary tract, the basis and principles for development of urologic diseases, and the evaluation and management of urologic diseases are also covered.

Reviews

“It can serve as an introduction to urology for students, a quick read for someone studying for the in-service or certification examinations, or a sensible summary for a practitioner trying to spruce up on a given topic. … The authors have succeeded in creating a comprehensive review of academic and clinical urology into a relevant reference. In a world of exhaustively complete references, this is a refreshing alternative.” (Costas D. Lallas, Doody's Book Reviews, June 5, 2020)
