“Editors John and Wiklund … prepared Robotic Urology with the interested urologist in mind and begin with an informative overview of the past, present, and future of robotic surgery. … recommended as excellent introductory texts for readers interested in the rapidly expanding field of robotic surgery in urology. … Robotic Urology … will appeal especially to those surgeons with a specific interest in pursuing robotic intervention for prostate cancer.” (Philip H. Kim and Chester J. Koh, Journal of the American Medical Association, February, 2009)
“Recent advances in urology aimed to reduce the invasiveness of surgical procedures for the patient. Laparoscopy was an important first step followed by robotics, which represents an obvious progress in this approach. … Most chapters are richly illustrated with figures and colour photographs. … We can recommend it to all urologists who are looking for a basic and compact overview on robotic urology. Experienced surgeons will also find valuable information in this book that may help improve their practice.” (Paul Meria, European Urology Today, April/May, 2009)
–This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
This updated edition offers guidance on the application of robotic surgery in urology. Each technique is described in detail, with careful explanation of the different surgical steps.
The book brings together leading robotic surgeons from around the world and utilises their knowledge once again to update and provide a manual that covers all the oncologic and reconstructive procedures in urologic surgery that are performed with robotic assistance.
This book serves as an ideal reference work for all urologists and should contribute in supporting new robotic teams.
