Jay T. Bishoff, MD, FACS is currently Director of the Intermountain Urological Institute. His post-doctoral fellowship was in laparoscopic oncology and kidney stone disease. His expertise and areas of research are in the latest minimally invasive oncology techniques including robotics, laparoscopy, cryotherapy, and radio frequency ablation Louis R. Kavoussi, MD, MBA, is Chairman of Urology for Northwell Health and Waldbaum-Gardner Distinguished Professor of Urology at the newly established Zucker School of Medicine. He heads the Arthur Smith Institute for Urology, which is dedicated to the treatment of urological disease through innovative surgical procedures, diagnostics and medical care
This seminal atlas is a strong addition to the urologic literature. Urologists, trainees, and, especially, budding laparoscopic/robotic surgeons will find this not only educational, but also exciting. Whether accessed in the library or on the train, the atlas's strongest attributes are its organization and its availability in print and digital formats for the urologist on the go.
