About this book


Robotic and Laparoscopic Reconstructive Surgery In Children and Adults is a unique volume focusing on the union between adult and pediatric urologic surgical techniques. The breadth of this wonderful convergence is most clearly and consistently demonstrated when minimally invasive reconstructive techniques are utilized. This volume describes in detail the surgical steps of the major adult and pediatric reconstructive laparoscopic and robotic cases. Pediatric urologists, adult urologists, fellows, and urology residents will find this volume to be a comprehensive, yet concise, reference for most all robotic and laparoscopic procedures that may be performed within this vast discipline.

From the reviews:

“The 20 well-written chapters by experts in their respective fields focus on a variety of laparoscopic and robotic procedures in children and adults … . It is intended for surgeons … . The book will serve well novice surgeons who are not familiar with the instrumentation, positioning, and considerations particular to each operation, but will also benefit experienced surgeons … . Overall, this is an excellent resource for those interested in the surgical advances in reconstructive urologic procedures and future applications of these techniques.” (Costas D. Lallas, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2011)

“Recent advances in laparoscopic and robotic surgery are now applicable to urology and onco- urology. … Michael Ost, with the help of about 50 contributors, experts in laparoscopy and robotics, aimed to collect various reconstructive laparoscopic and robot-assisted techniques. The book’s distinguishes itself by highlighting the association between pediatric and adult techniques. … This well-illustrated textbook is an original work which described the main steps of reconstructive laparoscopic and robotic surgery. … Adult and pediatric urologists will appreciate this comprehensive textbook.” (European Urology Today, June/July, 2011)

“This book aims to be concise, comprehensive and a reference for all robotic and laparoscopic procedures in paediatric and adult urology. It achieves this admirably … by producing succinct, well-structured chapters that include the basic background of the pathology and procedure, and descriptions of equipment and operative steps, emphasizing the avoidance of complications and thoroughly discussing advantages and disadvantages of various approaches. … I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and have no doubt that it is extremely useful for practising and developing laparoscopists … .”­­­ (Henrik Steinbrecher, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 93, October, 2011)
