A comprehensive but concise textbook focused on surgical procedures, established for over 30 years as a must-have surgical reference for resident and practicing urologists. Chapters are heavily illustrated and progress from Diagnosis to Indications for Surgery, to brief sections on Alternative Therapies, and then to detailed sections on surgical technique before closing with a discussion of outcomes as found in the literature. Each section will open with a thoroughly illustrated description of relevant anatomy.

-- 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.
