Posted On 2020-04-20 08:58:29

This focused series on “robotic-assisted urologic surgery” in Translational Andrology and Urology is a tour de force incorporating newer developments in the field of uro-oncology, reconstructive surgery, female urology and recent technological development such as single port surgery by the contributors who are truly pioneers and experts in the field of robotic surgery. As the guest editor, I am personally grateful to all the individual contributors of this series.
