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.

"In the preface of this offering the editors claim that they present a fresh, practical and concise textbook, covering vital issues that the urologist must face on a daily basis in the office. This claim is certainly justified and, as a basic text for the general urologist or urological trainee, I found it to be quite superb. ... it is very consistent in style and standard ... While the authorship contains many of the famous names of urology, the presented material benefits greatly from the 'coal-face experience' of the majority of the authors. ... The full range of general urology is covered, and while topics are presented in a didactic manner, the opinions presented are fair and well balanced.... It is comprehensive, authoritative and extremely useful for the general urologist. I certainly intend referring to it and can see a requirement for future editions as changes in office urological practice occur." - British Journal of Surgery
