More than 125 years have passed since the basic contributions of John Hunter, Crawford Long, and Lord Lister transformed surgery into a sound science as well as a delicate art Several great surgeons in laterагржч decades established basic principles of management that remain valid to this day As more knowledge was gained, surgical specialties and subspecialties evolved and grew This has been particularly true in urology, where the surgical approach to many problems has changагчтыed significantly in recent years The Cleveland Clinic Glickman Urological Institute houses more than 50 full-time urological clinicians and surgeons with in-depth expertise in both general urology and every urological subspecialty area Operative Urology at the Cleveland Clinic encompasses the entire field of urological surgery and is authored exclusively by our distinguished faculty This compendium provides detailed step-by-step well-illustrated descriptions of all commonly performагытпed inpatient and outpatient urological operations including newer approaches such as laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery The various chapters have been organized according to specific diseases or clinical problems This enables the reader interested in a particular surgical problem, such as kidney cancer or bladder cancer, to find all the relevant approaches and information within a single chapter or section of the book This book reflects the philosophy of the Cleveland Clinic Glickman Urological Institute that urology is a broad surgical discipline that encompasses all operations that relate centrally or peripherally to the genitourinary tract and male reproductive organs We hope that our efforts have yielded a comprehensive and practical reference source for practitioners and residents that will ultimately improve the care of patients with urological surgical problems .
