More About This Textbook


The 5-Minute Urology Consult, Second Edition is a comprehensive, easily accessible reference guide for any practitioner encountering urologic symptoms or disease.

This edition has a new international editorial board, contains many new entries, and includes a new section of algorithms for the most common or problematic diagnoses. The book has been reorganized so that all standard 2-page entries appear in alphabetical order, and pages are tabbed for quicker access. The short entries appear in alphabetical order in their own section after the standard entries.

A companion Website features additional content, an image bank, and information on all current drugs, herbal medications, and alternative therapies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This excellent book does superbly what it is intended to do: quickly provide the reader with the essential facts and action items needed to care for patients with almost any urologic problem. I looked up a few topics (eg, epididymitis) on the Internet, assumed that I knew very little about each topic, and found, as claimed, that the information in this book was more readily obtained and accurate. I will keep this book handy for myself and recommend the same for my colleagues in my department. It seems to me that every urologic patient care environment should have a hard copy or the online version within easy reach. I recommend it highly."

John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Contributing Editor, the Journal of the American Medical Association, March 2011

Provides useful information in a handy reference format to help with the everyday care of patients with urologic problems. Topics include presenting urologic problems and a logical framework for initial management; specific urologic diseases and conditions in both adult and pediatric patients; brief topics of clinical importance; and references for diagnostic urine studies, medications (including applications not often found on the package insert for "off label" indications commonly used in daily care), alternative therapies, and other frequently needed data. Edited by Gomella (urology, Jefferson Medical College, and director of urologic oncology, Kimmel Cancer Center) and Dambro (medical computing, U. of Arizona). Annotation c.
