About this book
Combining both operative day case urology and diagnostic urology into a practical and comprehensive summary of the most common ‘day case’ urological procedures, The Handbook of Office Urological Procedures is a concise and relevant guide for urological residents, consultants, general practitioners with special interest in urology and nurses, written by leading international experts in the field.
