Approximately 20% of all surgical operations and a similar percentage of surgical emergencies are urological in nature. However, often doctors have very limited experience of the many common and varied conditions encountered in this important surgical specialty. For the doctor or nurse expected to provide the initial assessment and management of a condition with which he or she has had very limited experience, this book provides an invaluable source of information and advice. This applies not only to SHOs and specialist registrars on urology and surgical rotations, but also to General Practitioners, Accident and Emergency staff and the growing number of urological specialist nurses. The Oxford Handbook of Urology, Second edition covers a wide spectrum of diseases and their treatment in the field of urology and surgical aspects of kidney, bladder, prostate and scrotal disorders. It aims to give a brief overview of many different urological subjects including urology emergencies, cancers, infections, children's disorders and kidney stone disease.It is designed so that it can be quickly and efficiently accessed by a range of people involved in patient care, including medical students, nurses, surgical and urology doctors and general practitioners.

Review quote

Despite being designed as a quick reference book it is really quite detailed. I have found it very suitable as the basis to grill specialist registrars revising for the final FRCS exam..Overall, I think this is an excellent book and the authors are to be congratulated for producing a book so useful across the spectrum of potential readers. Surg Engl This year's follow-up on the now landmark 2005 first edition provides an excellent update and in my view an improvement on its predecessor. I could not speak highly enough of this book as a revision aid... It is difficult to beat such a detailed source of information presented in such a accessible manner... As useful today as the Handbook of Medicine was for us as house officers. Urology News
