The invention of laparoscopic urological techniques in the early 1990s was met with scepticism by urologists who demanded that the methods prove themselves when compared to established 'open' surgical procedures. However, the techniques were quickly shown as successful, and over time have gained acceptance through reproducible and durable outcomes. In this well-illustrated surgical text, an international team of urologic surgeons specializing in uro-oncology share the experience gained in effective and reproducible teaching techniques in the field, and present the pioneering knowledge that will enable others to learn more about this important, ground-breaking procedure.... dissection 229 costs hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy 200-1 laparoscopic training 103-4 robotic systems 355 ... 305-7, 357, 358 robotic radical prostatectomy 305-13 role in education 104, 105 surgeona#39;s control console 306, 307, anbsp;...
