Summary "Laparoscopy has allowed surgeons to perform major surgical procedures through small incisions. The introduction of laparoscopy has revolutionized the field of minimally invasive surgery. Urologic Robotic Surgery presents accepted robotic applications to treat common urological problems. Accomplished authors demonstrate their expertise in basic instrumentation and techniques, potential applications and contraindications, with attention to patient positioning and trocar placement. Despite the increasing popularity of this technology, there remains a dearth of literature available to surgeons and patients. Urologic Robotic Surgery reveals the critical steps for each procedure, reviews robotic suturing, complications, training, and credentialing."--Jacket
