This classic three-volume work is a comprehensive, user-friendly reference on all surgical and medical aspects of urology. The first two volumes cover adult urology; the third volume focuses entirely on pediatric urology. All chapters follow a consistent, easy-to-read style of presentation and this edition features new chapters on bladder cancer, office-based urology, and alternative medicine in urology. Expanded coverage of prostate disease includes PSA testing and nerve-sparing surgery for prostate cancer. Other Fourth Edition highlights include expanded coverage of male sexual dysfunction, imaging studies, and a fully reorganized and updated volume on pediatric urology.
