This text focuses exclusively on the anatomical, physiological, pathological, and technical aspects of post robotic prostatectomy urinary continence and erectile function. It provides a comprehensive insight into the mechanisms responsible for maintaining urinary continence and erectile function and elucidates the key concepts and techniques utilized to achieve early return of urinary continence and erectile function after robotic radical prostatectomy. Surgical techniques with pre and post-operative interventions known to improve urinary and sexual function are integrated. A step- by- step “evidence- based” description of surgical techniques utilized in achieving the goals of urinary continence and erectile function are the hallmark of this book. A state-of-the art exhaustive review of “tips and tricks” utilized to achieve the trifecta of cancer control, urinary continence and erectile function in different clinical scenarios like large prostates, post TURP, and salvage robotic prostatectomies complete the text and make it the most exclusive resource available for both the expert and the novice robotic surgeon looking to improve patient outcomes after robotic radical prostatectomy. All chapters are written by world renowned experts in their fields and include extensive illustrations and videos to make this the most interactive and visually appealing text available.
