In The Press

“This book focuses on the functional outcomes of radical pelvic and neurourologic surgeries. … The audience is surgeons who perform these procedures and practitioners who take care of these patients -- surgical oncologists operating in the pelvis and neurourologists and members of their teams who help to manage these patients. It is also a reference for trainees who have an interest in the functional outcomes of pelvic surgery. … chapters contain an exhaustive contemporary bibliography and helpful illustrations and tables.” (Costas D. Lallas, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
