Robot-Assisted Radical Cystectomy: Male
Robot-assisted radical cystoprostatectomy will be covered in this chapter. A stepwise approach is covered with emphasis on important steps as well as tips and tricks to avoid complications. The combined experience of the authors dates back to 2005 when they began applying robotic techniques in the management of invasive bladder cancer. Perioperative and postoperative care is covered in this chapter providing the reader a foundation for developing a clinical pathway of their own.
