Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patrick J Shenot, MD (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: For more than five decades, this book has provided, with great clarity, an indispensible general overview of urology with chapters addressing anatomy, diagnostic studies, and common urologic disease. The previous edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The goal is to present a concise, well-organized book that provides the necessary information for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases managed by urologists. This worthy objective is met in a succinct, highly readable fashion.
Audience: This is unquestionably the preferred book for medical students, who will appreciate its easy-to-use format and concise presentation of the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical findings, differential diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of urologic conditions. Residents and practitioners in urology and primary care also will find it a useful reference as it stresses diagnosis and treatment. Chapters are authored by recognized experts.
Features: This is a comprehensive overview of the diagnosis and treatment of all common diseases and disorders managed by urologists. More than 1,600 illustrations and figures complement the concise, straightforward text. The book uses excellent, representative imaging studies such as CT scans, x-rays, ultrasounds, and radionuclide imaging scans.
Assessment: This edition lives up to the book's heritage as the single most useful, concise review in the field of urology. A new chapter on robotic surgery and thoroughly updated chapters on chemotherapy of urologic tumors, prostate cancer, and interventional vascular radiology easily justify purchase of this update even if the 17th edition is already in the collection. It remains a must-read for medical students and should be a useful reference for urology residents, practicing urologists, and clinicians in other fields of medicine.
