"This is an excellent compilation of surgical techniques that will be a great help for students to practitioners. It updates the new minimally invasive surgical techniques that have been developed since the previous edition."

-- Mark Mann, M.D. (Thomas Jefferson University) Doody's Review

"This well-written book is an excellent resource for both practicing urologists and urologists in training..."
"...The expansion of laparoscopic and robotic surgery in recent years and the expansion of the types of procedures performed make this update particularly useful."

-- Mohamed Ismail, MD (VA Medical Center Wilmington) Doody's Review - prior edition


This is appropriate for urology practitioners at all levels interested in either performing these procedures or simply getting a better understanding of the process that urology patients will be going through. As such, it is presented on a level that is easy to understand by surgeons as well as health sciences students.
