About this book
Robotics is one of the hottest topics in medicine today, with an international interest that is exponentially growing. The introduction of robotic technology into modern operating theatres has provoked a revolutionary change in the basic surgical approach, with many advantages over traditional open surgical treatment, including faster recovery and a significantly lower risk of surgical trauma. Furthermore, robotic technology has already also surpassed the traditional laparoscopic approach by providing full three-dimensional vision, intuitive motion and wristed instrumentation with motion scaling.
This book therefore provides an up-to-date overview of this exciting field in a pocket-sized handbook, featuring contributions from internationally recognised experts in the field. Covering all major applications of this technology, the work will familiarize the reader with the state-of-the-art techniques in robotic prostatectomy, cystectomy, pyeloplasty and urogynecology, among others.
Aimed at trainee level in particular, but a useful manual for all levels and relevant departments (surgeons, anaesthetists, operating theatre staff), Robotic Surgery in Clinical Practice is an educational easy-reference work, covering specific surgical techniques and patient care, supported by a number of illustrations and clear summary tables.

From the reviews:
"This book moves from the history and development of robotic surgery to its current applications in adult and pediatric urology and gynecology. … The editor … has put together this book for urology residents in particular. Residents, and perhaps other medical/ancillary staff working daily with robotic procedures, can benefit from this well written and illustrated book. … it is a good reference to keep on the shelf." (Jaspreet Singh, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)
