    Divided into eleven detailed sections, this reference displays the expertise and research of specialists from leading urology centers around the world and offers authoritative chapters on the entire spectrum of urologic laparoscopy. The chapters cover methods in patient selection, peri-operative management, and complication avoidance; step-by-step descriptions of specific techniques; and the pros and cons of each procedure for a clear grasp of the many principles and practices currently utilized in the field.

    Placed alongside the Atlas of Laparoscopic Urology with DVDs, this set will likely become the standard reference text in the field of urologic laparoscopic surgery.
