The first edition laid out the foundation with laparoscopic and robotic surgery utilizing the Da Vinci SI platform. Since then, many new advances in equipment and surgical techniques are becoming more popular. This second edition expands upon laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques and robotic surgery with the use of the new Da Vinci XI platform. This book bridges the gap between the practicing community of surgeons and the surgical innovators and provides a foundation for all classic and new techniques in minimally invasive colorectal surgery. By enhancing the surgical toolbox, the surgeon is able to progress from the novice to the master. Rather than describing the entire operative procedure by an individual author, this book compares operative steps of various technical difficulties throughout different chapters, thereby allowing the surgeon to tailor surgery to patient and surgeon`s own comfort level and experience. Chapters are written by a myriad of renowned experts in the field and discuss the major advances in advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic, robotic, and transanal minimally invasive surgical techniques. Great emphasis is placed on transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME), which is dramatically changing the surgical approach to rectal resections. The second edition of Advanced Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Colorectal Surgery serves as a valuable resource to general surgeons, colon and rectal surgeons, minimally invasive surgeons, as well as residents and fellows.

What men with prostate cancer really want-the guarantee of a long, healthy life with their prostate cancer definitively behind them-is not available. There is no crystal ball that can forecast the certain, good outcome that every man hopes for, not even for those who will ultimately get the result they want. In Managing Prostate Cancer, Dr. Andrew Roth teaches strategies for how to live better with the questions and decisions that arise from prostate cancer. A psychiatrist who has specialized in helping people to cope with these challenges for over twenty years, Dr. Roth provides clear and understandable advice for patients, their loved ones, and healthcare givers. With his guidance, men and their families will learn how to manage the psychological stressors of a new cancer diagnosis. Dr. Roth shows men how to navigate what feel like impossible treatment choices, and to handle the emotional ups and downs of active surveillance and anxiety about prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests. Patients will also learn mechanisms for accepting and adapting to the consequences of their cancer treatment, which may include the physical complications of urinary, erectile, or bowel dysfunction, fatigue, and hot flashes, as well as the demoralizing recurrence of disease after treatment. Dr. Roth clearly addresses issues that are not easily discussed yet can bring significant suffering. Men receive valuable tips on how to manage the impact of the cancer and its treatment on their social, sexual, and intimate relationships and behaviors. Finally, Dr. Roth provides gentle, wise guidance for men with advanced prostate cancer about becoming realistic yet invaluable role models for children, grandchildren, and friends. Dr. Roth shows men and their families how to face the end of life with improved self-esteem and sense of worth. The book will also assist oncology teams to address complex issues of coping and to communicate more constructively with their patients.

Diagnosis and treatment are presented for a variety of conditions, including overactive bladder, detrusor underactivity, painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis, prostatitis, stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary tract infections, and urethral disorders. The content is based on the EAU guidelines, and for each disorder, helpful tips and tricks are highlighted.
Though sexual medicine is probably among the oldest of medical specialties, in fact not much was spoken about the subject till Kinsey published his first report in 1948. Speaking of sex was not considered a taboo by ancient civilizations, but this has not continued into the modern era. Herein lies the principle problem...patients and even doctors are not willing to openly discuss sexuality and sexual health. Healthcare professionals also fail to discuss these pertinent issues due to a lack of time, resources and general fear of causing offense. More importantly, there seems to be a lack of good training. Societies like the International Society of Sexual Medicine and European Society of Sexual Medicine (ESSM) are actively taking up the cause and furthering research into this particular field. Considering that the prevalence of male and female sexual dysfunction in the general population ranges between 2 and 10%, the need of the hour is to train more doctors to professionally practice sexual medicine. Good textbooks on sexual medicine for primary healthcare providers are few and far between. The ESSM has come out with a working syllabus but a more concise text is still lacking. This book, Sexual Medicine - Principles and Practice, aims to bridge that gap by presenting scientific principles in the treatment of male and female sexual dysfunction, while also highlighting numerous recent advances. Reviewing basic principles like assessment of male and female sexual function and/or dysfunction, along with sex therapy, it offers an essential reference guide for physicians, surgeons, gynecologists, urologists, and all those wish to practice sexual medicine
This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable practical resource for clinicians with an interest in conducting urodynamics. The book reviews new data about the indications, conduct and interpretation of various aspects of urodynamic testing. With an emphasis on clinical urodynamics, it is arranged into sections that correspond with the basic elements of urodynamic testing; noninvasive urodynamics (uroflow and post void residual), cystometrogram, storage studies (leak point pressures, stability, compliance and capacity) and voiding phases (pressure flow study). Other testing modalities that are discussed include EMG testing, fluoroscopy, and provocative maneuvers. Practical Urodynamics for the Clinician will serve as a very useful and practical resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this complex physiologic testing tool. It will provide a concise yet comprehensive summary of the field that will help guide the selection of patients for the study, preparation of the patient, the conduct of the study and finally the interpretation of the urodynamics evaluation.
This book describes in detail the multidisciplinary management of obesity, providing readers with a thorough understanding of the rationale for a multidisciplinary approach and with the tools required to implement it effectively. The emphasis is on a translational approach, starting from basic concepts and fundamental mechanisms of the pathology and clinical morbidity.

Put another way, the book covers all aspects from the bench to the bedside. Physicians, scientists and postgraduate students will all find it to be invaluable in understanding the causes and optimal management of obesity, which has rapidly become a major public health problem.
There is a clear need for a more comprehensive and inclusive body of information for supplementary and alternate treatment of urological conditions. To meet this need, our book will compile evidence-based information for clinicians, healthcare providers, and patients. As the first comprehensive educational guidebook focusing on alternative therapies for urological ailments, this book will be useful for healthcare providers as well as patients suffering from these conditions (including urinary tract infections, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, incontinence, and pelvic pain) who are looking for alternative and supplementary remedies. Many physicians and patients are reluctant to use these remedies and this book will demystify this area in urology.
This book combines concise descriptions of the various andrological surgical interventions in the adolescent and adult with detailed analysis of the pre- and postoperative psychosexual counseling of the patient and his family that is appropriate to each procedure. It offers a multidisciplinary approach to the candidate for andrological surgery that reflects the everyday experiences of an andro-sexology team. Each chapter focuses on a particular surgical procedure.
