Percutaneous Renal Surgery

This is the first textbook devoted entirely to percutaneous renal surgery. The text explains the basic anatomy, instruments, track dilation and creation, kidney access and surgical treatment of all complex stone scenarios. The book is written in simple sections and is extensively illustrated with more than 250 illustrations. All diagrams have been drawn by the author and reproduced by a professional graphic artist. The book describes the basic techniques, then progresses clinically through to more difficult clinical and surgical scenarios. In this way, it is akin to a "cook book" in style, that is easily referenced and readable. As percutaneous renal surgery is a team effort, the book contains descriptors for ward and theatre technicians and nurses, as well as equipment lists. The book also contains a "do it yourself" six-stage percutaneous renal surgery workshop program. This workshop can be performed in any department practising PCNL. Percutaneous Renal Surgery: A Practical Clinical Handbook represents a practical manual, suitable for medical students, nurses and technicians and is a unique manual for all urology trainees and urologists treating renal stone disease worldwide.

He has been awarded a Master of Surgeon and Doctor of Medicine for his research, innovation and instrument design for percutaneous renal surgery by the University of Melbourne.

It is a valuable portable resource for urology trainees or practicing urologists treating patients with nephrolithiasis." (Kelly A. Healy, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2016)
