In this second, revised edition ofRobotic Urology, leading robotic surgeons from around the world pool their knowledge to provide an updated manual that covers all the oncologic and reconstructive procedures in urologic surgery that are performed with robotic assistance. Each operation is described in detail, with careful explanation of the different surgical steps and numerous high-quality anatomic illustrations and color surgical photos. An additional feature is the inclusion of extensive references to the scientific literature. As well as offering excellent guidance on the application of robotic surgery in urology, the book will serve as an ideal reference work for all urologists and should contribute in supporting new robotic teams and further popularizing robotic surgery.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This is the second edition of a comprehensive reference on robotic surgery in urology. . Although some of its sections can serve as reference for trainees who are reviewing the latest trends in robotic surgery, this book is intended more for surgeons with a background in robotic surgery who are seeking the opinions and methods of the authorities for given procedures. . detail in each section is exquisite and the book is rife with learning tips and tricks for readers." (Costas D. Lallas, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2013)
