Within this single volume, surgeons and medical students are able to find up-to-date clinical information and advice needed to manage this unique condition of small renal masses. The book aims to present information on the topic in a clear and logical way, with the help of figures, tables, and images that will assist in the practical application of the skills that are obtained from the book.
The growth of new technologies and the continued development of existing techniques have led to a considerable number of new options that can be offered to patients by urologists. Despite these advances, challenges still remain and this book offers individual solutions to each aspect of the management of small renal masses, so that every diagnosis can be tailored to each patient.
Written by leading experts, this book gives expert insight and advice into the diagnosing and managing of this condition. From making an accurate diagnosis to selecting the appropriate treatment for the patient, this book will provide a comprehensive guide on all aspects of the management of small renal masses.

Ben Challacombe BSc(hons), MS, FRCS(Urol), Consultant Urological Surgeon, Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London, UK. His areas of interest are benign and malignant prostate disease and minimally invasive surgery for the upper urological tract. Ben is the highest volume surgeon for robotic partial nephrectomy in the UK and also specialises in robotic radical prostatectomy, and robotic surgery for nephro-ureterectomy, pyeloplasty, adrenalectomy and nephrectomy, and Holmium laser prostatectomy (HoLEP). He runs the robotic fellowship programme and teaches robotics and HoLEP at the British and European Annual Urology meetings. Ben is also involved in the academic and research programmes within the department. He is involved with both undergraduate and postgraduate urological teaching and is the Guy's and St Thomas' surgical tutor for junior surgeons.
Professor Alexandre Mottrie is a Urologist in the O.L.V. Hospital in Aalst, Belgium. His major urological interests are urological oncology and minimal invasive surgery. He is a pioneer in robotic surgery and started this type of surgery in 2001. He developed different types of robotic surgery. At his department, he developed laparoscopic and robotic surgery to become training center in this field. With over 4000 robotic procedures, he has one of the largest experiences in the robotic field. In 2010, Dr. Mottrie founded the ORSI Academy, a multidisciplinary school of robotic surgery.
Prof. Dr. Mottrie is scientifically very involved. He has authored multiple scientific papers and organised several international Congresses and Masterclasses in these fields. He has been actively involved in several congresses to perform live-surgery, give courses and/or present state-of-the-art lectures. He is the Scientific Director of the ERUS-congresses and the Global Congresses on Prostate Cancer (Prosca). He is the founding president of the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) and the past president of the Belgian Laparoscopic Urology Group (BLUG). He is also founding board member of the Society of Robotic Surgeons (SRS) and is its Past-President. He is Guest Professor in the Universität des Saarlandes Homburg-Saar (Germany) and the University of Ghent (Belgium). He is currently Editor of Surgery-in-Motion, the video section of European Urology and the Surgery-in-Motion School. In 2015, he received the Golden Telescope Award in London
