Urologists interested in prosthesis surgery currently offer a range of procedures eg slings for incontinence in both men and women, and is also within the remit of those undertaking AUS (artificial urinary sphincter) implantation, and likewise andrological surgeons undertaking penile prosthesis also offer AUS. There are a number of procedures which are common to all urologists with a general urology practice eg ureteric stents and testicular implants. However, the purpose of this book is to cover this area of urological surgery and provide a reference book for those interested in expanding their practice.
