Description

Single-Port Robotic Surgery in Urology: The New Beginning After the Advent of Dedicated Platforms describes the novel field of robotic single-port urologic surgery. Recent advances in surgical robotics combined with the pursuit to reduce the invasiveness of laparoscopic surgery have led to the development of novel robotic platforms specifically designed for single-port surgery. This reference summarizes the state-of-the-art of robotic single-port urologic surgery. Coverage takes a three-part approach, providing a description of the technological evolution which led to the advent of novel platforms specifically designed for single-port surgery, describing the urological procedures that can be performed, and outcomes and potential drawbacks.

Key Features

  • Provides a description of the current status of single-port robotic urologic surgery performed using novel dedicated platforms
  • Expands understanding on why single-port is better than the standard multi-arms robotic approach, highlighting an analysis of surgical steps
  • Summarizes data about each intervention, including pooled comparative analyses, to provide the most evidence-based examination possible

    Jihad Kaouk

    Jihad H. Kaouk, M.D. is an Associate Professor of Surgery and the Director of the Center for Advanced Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery in the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute at Cleveland Clinic. He is a leader in the development of innovative surgical techniques and specializes in robotics and laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Kaouk developed a new surgical approach at Cleveland Clinic, known as single-port laparoscopy, that results in little or no scarring after surgery and reduces complications and pain. Dr. Kaouk received the Cleveland Clinic Innovator Award in 2006, he was named in Who’s Who in America and one of America’s Top Physicians in Urology by Consumers’ Research Council from 2005-2007. Dr. Kaouk received First Prize in the 18th World Congress on Endourology and received the best overall research paper award at the 26th World Congress on Endourology.
