Surgery for Urologic Cancers

Posted On 2020-09-27 10:41:15

This special series of reviews on the important surgical procedures for urological cancers, each aiming to describe the surgical principles and summarise the literature on outcomes and complications. For newer and developing procedures such as robotic partial nephrectomy and penile-sparing surgery, these reviews should enable additional uptake and dissemination. Conversely, for well-established procedures such as bladder tumour resection and pelvic lymphadenectomy, they will serve the purpose of reinforcing good surgical technique and appropriate patient selection. I hope the end result will be further improvement in the surgical management of urological cancers.
