His main areas of interest are Endo-Urology, Laparoscopic Urology, Pediatric Urology, and Renal Transplantation (550 Renal Transplants to date). Dr Vipul Patel serves at the Medical Director at the Global Robotics Institute, 410 Celebration Place, Suite 200, Celebration, FL 34747, USA. He has personally performed the most robotic prostatectomies in the world, and is one of only two surgeons to have performed 2,000 robotic procedures. He has utilized his skill and knowledge in this field to train and educate surgeons world wide. He is editor in chief of the Journal of Robotic Surgery and of the first robotic urology textbook, both published with Springer. Prior to joining Florida Hospital, Dr. Patel practiced at the Ohio State University where he served as the Director of Robotic and Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery. The contributing authors will include Professor David Mois Albala, Professor Gopal Badlani, Professor Jens Rassweiler, and Dr Chandra Shekhar Biyani, who have all published extensively.


From the reviews:"The authors present a vast array of urologic surgical procedures that can be performed laparoscopically in skilled hands and clearly demonstrate the increasing indications for minimally invasive surgery with urologic patients. ... Urology residents, fellows, and surgeons interested in minimally invasive surgery will find this atlas to be invaluable resource ... . All clinical sections are well illustrated and present detailed approaches with high quality photographs. ... an invaluable resource for both trainees and attending surgeons looking to improve their clinical skills ... ." (Ahmad H Bani-Hani, Doody's Review Service, March, 2009)"This operative atlas was written by Ramalingam and Patel, two skilled laparoscopists. Twenty contributors, all of them experts in laparoscopy, helped the authors to compile this comprehensive guide. ... Each chapter is richly illustrated with captioned, full-colour photographs and figures. ... This outstanding original textbook assembles a significant amount of information for all practising urologists and trainees. It can certainly be recommended for purchase."
