About this book


This book offers a detailed description of various forms of urinary diversions, including the ileal conduit, orthotopic neobladder, and a variety of continent cutaneous diversions with specific focus on the techniques of reconstruction, appropriate patient selection, and management of common complications. The book also includes chapters on management of complications encountered with various forms of diversion. There are also chapters devoted to quality of life following urinary diversion and well as future perspectives.

  Urinary Diversion will be of great value for the urologist in training or in practice who wishes to not only expand the repertoire of urinary diversions offered to patients but also refine techniques of managing common complications.

Dr. Daneshmand’s main interests include bladder cancer, advanced kidney cancer and testicular cancer. He has extensive experience with radical cystectomy and continent urinary diversion. His main research interests focus on the use of pathways to improve peri-operative outcomes following radical cystectomy, use of serum and molecular markers and new technologies in diagnosis and management of bladder cancer, as well as functional outcomes following continent urinary diversion.  He is a leading authority on enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) following radical cystectomy and his protocol has significantly reduced hospital stay while improving the patient experience. He serves on the editorial board of the Bladder Cancer Journal, the scientific advisory board of Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) as well as the American Urological Society/ Society of Urologic Oncology Guideline Committee on non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.

“This comprehensive book on urinary diversion after radical cystectomy covers techniques to create open and robotic approaches to both continent and incontinent urinary diversions. … The intended audience is senior level trainees or experienced surgeons who are considering expanding their knowledge base regarding urinary diversion after cystectomy. It is also a useful reference for physician extenders who may be involved in preoperative counseling or postoperative follow up of these complicated patients.” (James R. Mark, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2017)
