About this book


Widespread changes in health care delivery and financing have led to a major increase in the level of office-based care provided by urologists. Office Urology: The Clinician's Guide was created to provide a fresh, practical, and concise survey of the key medical and management issues every practicing urologist faces in the office on a daily basis. Here the busy urologist will find easy-to-use clinical articles-written by physicians with demonstrated clinical expertise-that summarize the diagnostic procedures and treatments now widely provided in the office, including intravesical therapy for bladder cancer, minimally invasive treatment of benign prostatic obstruction, transrectal ultrasound and prostate biopsy, and office urodynamics. In addition, there are helpful discussions on marketing the practice, billing and coding techniques, advanced information systems, and important legal issues, as well as expert advice on such neglected topics as genital pain, managing geriatric incontinence, practical dermatology, and counseling patients on the optimal management of their problems.
Authoritative and practical, Office Urology: The Clinician's Guide offers every active urologist a gold-standard handbook of today's most appropriate treatments and successful office management techniques.
