Description / Abstract:


The paradigm for treating urologic conditions has undergone a sea of change during the past decade. Guided by new research, the approval of novel pharmaceutical and minimally invasive therapies, and the economics of healthcare financing, physicians have altered their approach to patient care in distinct ways. This evolution in thinking continues today. Indeed, as novel therapeutic modalities become available, as new connections between procedures and outcomes become identified, and as we learn which baseline parameters best predict treatment response in particular patient populations, the therapeutic paradigm is likely to evolve, and progress, still further.

This book is designed to give the reader an up to date review of new techniques and therapeutic alternatives in urology. Specifically, the minimally invasive approach to various disease processes is emphasized. As our population ages and the need to safely and effectively address important quality of life disorders such as erectile dysfunction, voiding dysfunction, and stone disease as well as urologic cancers, we need to be adept at delivering these new technologies to our patients. It is our hope that the techniques described herein will be a good start toward that endeavor.
