Elsevier/Academic Press has published a book edited by surgeons Riccardo Bertolo and Jihad Kaouk titled: Single-Port Robotic Surgery in Urology: The New Beginning After the Advent of Dedicated Platforms. (1st Edition)
This is a comprehensive look at this exciting new tool for today's robotic surgeon. From the catalog description:
"Recent advances in surgical robotics combined with the pursuit to reduce the invasiveness of laparoscopic surgery have led to the development of novel robotic platforms specifically designed for single-port surgery. This reference summarizes the state-of-the-art of robotic single-port urologic surgery. Coverage takes a three-part approach, providing a description of the technological evolution which led to the advent of novel platforms specifically designed for single-port surgery, describing the urological procedures that can be performed, and outcomes and potential drawbacks."
Dr. Riccardo Bertolo works as a staff urologist at San Carlo di Nancy Hospital in Rome (Italy).
Dr. Jihad H. Kaouk, M.D. is an Associate Professor of Surgery and the Director of the Center for Advanced Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery in the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute at Cleveland Clinic.
We congratulate the editors and contributors on the publication of this work.
