About this book


Robotic Surgery of the Bladder is a dedicated resource to understanding and mastering the concepts and practical aspects of robotic bladder surgery. The volume provides an introduction to urologists interested in initiating robotic radical cystectomy by providing them background, concepts, steps, and tools and tricks to introduce robotic radical cystectomy into their clinical practice, all in a safe, stepwise, and organized manner. For the more experienced robotic surgeon, the text serves as a resource for more advanced applications and techniques. The volume is also accompanied by many still images and a DVD of video clips.

Written by experts in the field, Robotic Surgery of the Bladder is a comprehensive resource that maintains the time-tested oncologic principles of bladder cancer surgery, while introducing the advantages that exist with robotic-assisted approaches.

From the reviews:

“To my knowledge, this is the first comprehensive review of robotic surgery of the bladder. … The book is written for urology residents, fellows, and practitioners interested in adding robotic bladder surgery to their surgical armamentarium. … The highlights of this book are the numerous illustrations, photographs, and videos of the techniques, which are compiled on the accompanying DVD. … This is a helpful and timely book for urologists learning and practicing robotic bladder surgery.” (Ilia S. Zeltser, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
