The Oxford Specialist Handbook of Urological Surgery is a comprehensive textbook of urological surgical technique, designed specifically for the trainee urological surgeon, whether he or she intends to be an office-based urologist, or a specialist urology surgeon.
The handbook provides an in-depth description of all aspects of urological surgery, with a step-by-step approach on how to perform urological operations. The reader is taken through simple procedures such as cystoscopy, J stent insertion and bladder biopsy, through to more complex surgery such as cystectomy and PCNL. It describes indications for surgery, diagnostic work-up, surgical technique, routine post-operative care together with the approach to management of complications of urological surgery. The trainee urologist will find it an invaluable source of information, particulary as a last minute reminder of how to perform a particular operation.
