Review quote

From the reviews: "This book is a timely overview of an exciting and evolving sub-specialty within urology. ... The text begins with a historical perspective and moves on to operating room setup and port placement which a novice team will find very useful. ... Urologic Robotic Surgery has already found a place in our departmental library. Urologists at all stages of their career will find it easy to read. In addition theatre nurses, medical students, trainees, and even interested patients would find it informative." (Prokar Dasgupta, Industrial Robot Journal, March, 2008) "This textbook of urologic robotic surgery covers nine procedures in its 16 chapters ... . a valuable educational guide for novice robotic surgeons interested in performing a new procedure. The book also provides a quick review for expert laparoscopic/robotic surgeons performing uncommon robotic procedures. ... Chapters ... are educational, clearly written with attention to detail, and include original references to the medical literature. ... a good resource for readers interested in learning the basics of robotic surgery along with step-by-step techniques for robotic procedures." (Gaurav Bandi, Doody's Review Service, September, 2008) "The editors of Urologic Robotic Surgery have organized their text into 4 distinct sections covering history, operative setup, robotic procedures, and other miscellaneous considerations. ... recommended as excellent introductory texts for readers interested in the rapidly expanding field of robotic surgery in urology. The general urologist seeking a broad overview of robotics and its application across a variety of genitourinary processes, both adult and pediatric, will likely find Urologic Robotic Surgery ... to be an outstanding first-line resource."

Back cover copy

Laparoscopy has allowed surgeons to perform major surgical procedures through small incisions. The introduction of laparoscopy has revolutionized the field of minimally invasive surgery. Urologic Robotic Surgery presents accepted robotic applications to treat common urological problems. Accomplished authors demonstrate their expertise in basic instrumentation and techniques, potential applications and contraindications, with attention to patient positioning and trocar placement. Despite the increasing popularity of this technology, there remains a dearth of literature available to surgeons and patients. Urologic Robotic Surgery reveals the critical steps for each procedure, reviews robotic suturing, complications, training and credentialing.show more
