This new reference is devoted to the exploding area of robotic-assisted urologic surgery. It covers setting up robotics and instrumentation, as well as adapting laparoscopic equipment to this exciting new technology. It also guides you through a full range of robotic procedures including prostatectomy, which is experiencing significant success and patient satisfaction by using robotic technology, as well as nephrectomy, adrenalectomy, vasovasostomy, and pediatric procedures. Full color illustrations help familiarize you with the latest surgical techniques and instrumentation.
  • Learn about the indications for robotic urologic surgery and the potential improvements in patient outcomes.
  • Covers all urologic procedures that are adaptable to robotic technology with chapters on cystectomy, nephrectomy, prostatectomy, vasovasostomy, and adrenalectomy.
  • Offers full color images of procedures to enhance surgical concepts.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is the first of its kind devoted to the exploding area of robotic-assisted urologic surgery. It is the accumulated output of 51 international pioneers in the field from six different countries. The book contains very clear and vivid pictures and diagrams of surgical techniques and port insertion sites. This is definitely a must have book for any urological surgeon with a special interest in laparoscopic and robotic surgery and I must say that it would be of great benefit for trainees as it opens window to this interesting and exponentially evolving world.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edouard Trabulsi, MD, FACS (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: The 20 chapters in this book, written by prominent minimally invasive surgeons from the U.S. and Europe, highlight the field of robotic surgery in urologic practice.
Purpose: The authors wish to expose readers to the breadth of experience of robotic surgery for urologic procedures, and to explain the history and development of the currently available technologies. The chapters explain technical aspects of robotic urologic procedures, with significant graphics, including drawings and operative photographs. The authors also highlight the published literature demonstrating functional results as well as operative parameters and complications of the various procedures. The book appears all-inclusive, covering all aspects of this exploding field, as well as projected future developments.
Audience: Novice robotic surgeons, as well as trainees in medical school, their residencies, and fellowships are the intended audience. The book describes the steps necessary to start a successful program, including the importance of a dedicated surgical team, and devotes several chapters to specific, technical operating room nuances to help novices succeed.
Features: The majority of the book focuses on robotic prostatectomy, accounting for 12 of the 20 chapters. This is not surprising, considering robotic prostatectomy is the most commonly performed robotic procedure in urology. The remaining chapters cover the history of robotics in urology, the use of robotics in surgical procedures of the kidney and bladder, and pediatric robotic surgery and nonurologic robotic surgery. The final chapter highlights some of the financial considerations of this expensive technology. The chapters on the whole are well written and comprehensive, and the illustrations are a strong point, with excellent color pictures. There is considerable overlap among the chapters, however, particularly with the robotic prostate chapter. Additionally, the quality of the chapters is uneven, with some very brief, and others redundant.
Assessment: The book works well as a snapshot of the available technology and its current and future applicability to the practice of urology. The field of robotic surgery is exploding, and this book captures the growth curve we are witnessing before our eyes.
