This book is an ideal introduction to robotic surgery for the urologist. Robotic surgery is the way of the future for surgery in the 21st century. It allows great precision in surgical technique, as well as enabling the surgeon to reach areas not easily accessible with open surgery. Robotics will allow surgeons to operate on patients in remote areas, even outer space!

This is a well-written tome really intended for the urologist, oncologist and others with a direct interest in renal cancer. It assumes there is already familiarity with the subject matter. The book has been edited by two globally acknowledged experts. The 38 chapters are written by recognised specialists on that particular topic. Each article has been given a similar format and is laid out clearly and logically. Each chapter comes with a long list of references.
