About this book


Surgical urology is a continual learning experience, particularly when the surgical approach to many problems has changed significantly in recent years. In Operative Urology at the Cleveland Clinic, more than 50 full-time urological clinicians and surgeons from the internationally acclaimed Cleveland Clinic Glickman Urological Institute describe operations ranging from the most common to the most innovative urological procedures. All are from the standpoint of the state-of-the-art, as it is defined and practiced at one of the world's top institutions. Their comprehensive atlas of urological surgery offers a unique marriage of informative text with superb illustrations to provide detailed, step-by-step descriptions of all the regularly performed inpatient and outpatient urological operations, including newer approaches, such as laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery. The interpretive artwork is unique in its ability to clearly demonstrate complex procedures so that any urologist can understand and adopt them, if they match his or her skill set. Highlights include robotic and laparoscopic prostatectomy, open and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, renal transplantation, the male sling, and minimally invasive treatments for urological conditions. The chapters have been organized by specific disease so that the reader interested in a particular surgical problem, such as kidney or bladder cancer, can find all the relevant approaches and information within a single section of the book.
Comprehensive and innovative, Operative Urology at the Cleveland Clinic fulfills the passion of the Glickman Urological Institute at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation by defining the state of the art in urological surgery and patient care, and setting the standard for illustrated urological surgery atlases.
