The editors, all experts in urological laparoscopy, have chosen an elite team, mainly from the USA, to present their practical surgical expertise in a clearly written, instructive book which also includes an extensive section on pediatric operations.
With laparoscopy training now incorporated into many urology training programmes, this is undoubtedly a highly useful and important reference for trainees in the field.
