Oxford Handbook of Urology
as NICE, have all been updated to reflect the best evidence-based clinical practice.
Featuring both additional and expanded topics, the new edition is up to date for use in everyday urological clinical practice, and now includes recent urological controversies such as the use of vaginal mesh, to offer the newest guidance to help with doctors' consultations with the patient.
The handbook is a comprehensive and concise resource, spanning the whole field of urology in an easily digestible format, including the basics of patient assessment and investigations. Providing bite-sized topics with easily navigable sections and summary diagrams and photographs, it is a key source for quick reference during clinical duties in clinics, theatre, and A&E settings, whilst providing enough information for urology doctors taking the FRCS exam. The authors have a wide range of
subspecialist interests, and have welcomed a brand new co-author to ensure coverage of the needs of junior doctors. The Oxford Handbook of Urology is an invaluable resource for junior urology doctors, A&E and general surgery doctors, urology ward and theatre nurses, and medical students.

being thoroughly explained... The core topics are covered with surprising detail for a handbook. On top of this there is coverage of topics relevant for the practice of urology such as basic renal physiology and how to communicate effectively with patients, making a very rounded and complete handbook
for this field, * Urology News, August 2013 * Physicians appreciate practical and quite exhaustive sources of information which aim to facilitate procedures or provide support with their daily practice... This pocketbook is undoubtedly an outstanding tool for everyone and we recommend it to all urologists, regardless of their level of practice. * European Urology Today * Review from previous edition The book covers the breadth of urology and its brevity for each topic makes it accessible to the generalist but it has sufficient depth (and good referencing) to be of use to specialist trainees. I regularly recommend this book to medical students and junior colleagues. * BMA Book Awards 2014. Highly Commended * You have to hand it to Oxford University Press, they continue to relentlessly churn out superb books in their outstanding Oxford Medical Handbooks series and this book is no exception. Like many of its siblings in this series, it is more than just a simple handbook. This is a very good textbook of urology ideal for both trainees and generalists within the speciality as well as primary care personnel. * Dr Harry Brown MBChB, Glycosmedia *
