This is an up-to-date, complete textbook covering virtually all aspects of adult and pediatric genitourinary cancer surgery with special emphasis on surgical techniques. Many of the 14 sections are preceded by a precise overview with special attention to historic background, cause and pathogenesis, clinical appearance, diagnosis, staging and preoperative evaluation, treatment, surgical objectives, perioperative care, and prognosis and results of specific therapy.

The first eight sections concern the following adult genitourinary tract cancers: adrenal, kidney, renal pelvic and ureteral, retroperitoneal, prostate, bladder, testis and penis, and urethra. One section is devoted to pediatric tumors with an emphasis on neuroblastoma, Wilms' tumor, and genitourinary rhabdomyosarcoma. The remaining sections are devoted to important related aspects of nonsurgical management, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, radiologic diagnosis, and medical and psychiatric aspects of the patient with cancer. The chapter on general principles of chemotherapy is a classic.
