Bayne Selby, Jr. Smith, Jr. Steers, MD Jay Y. Darracott Vaughan, Jr. Stuart Wolf, Jr. Wyker, Jr. The text, as in previous editions, has been written to serve as a practical reference for residents and practicing urologists. We have attempted to make the text readable and user-friendly and to provide a comprehensive description of the subject, rather than an encyclopedic dissertation.

The authors have tried to assimilate all the important information about each subject and to evaluate it in order to reach the best conclusion or consensus. Practicing urologists and residents alike have commented favorably on the content and presentation of the material in the previous editions. We believe the new edition continues to present excellent coverage of the topics in a clear and concise manner. The fourth edition consists of three volumes.

The first two volumes cover adult urology. Most chapters have been completely rewritten. The coverage on prostatic diseases has been expanded; completely new chapters on anatomy, diagnostic imaging, surgical management of calculus disease, bladder cancer, diseases of the retroperitoneum, alternative therapies, office urology, AIDS, and spinal cord injury have been included.

The third volume, under the very capable leadership of Michael Mitchell, covers pediatric urology. We have arranged the pediatric volume by pathophysiology and treatment modality to facilitate easy clinical referencing. The sections on hypospadias, exstrophy, laparoscopic surgery, and reconstruction techniques have been radically changed to include current techniques in state-of-the-art technologies. With this new edition, we are pleased to present a companion CD-ROM that contains all of the text, figures, and tables found within the three volumes.

In addition, we have used the power of electronic publishing to provide material that cannot be presented in print by including video clips of surgical procedures.

These video clips concentrate on aspects of the procedures that cannot be conveyed adequately in still images. We hope the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words will be proven true and that these videos will provide a valuable resource for our readers. We also hope that the portable and searchable nature of the CD-ROM will further enhance the user-friendly nature of the fourth edition of Adult and Pediatric Urology. No text is any better than its authors, editors, and publishers. Working with Jack Grayhack, Stuart Howards, and Michael Mitchell has been both pleasant and intellectually stimulating.

Each of the editors has worked closely with his authors to ensure the best coverage possible for a wide array of subjects. The authors enthusiastically responded and produced scholarly, critical, and informative chapters that are easy to read.

I know of no other group who could have transformed so much manuscript into a completed textbook in such a compressed time frame. We believe the result to be an up-to-date, thorough, and eminently readable textbook of general urology. For the editors.

History[ edit ] Dr. Neff Almost one hundred years after the establishment of the school of medicine by Thomas Jefferson , it became evident and necessary to detach what was then known as genito-urinary practices from the general surgery and set it up as a separate service. Dr John Henry Neff, Jr. Gillenwater The first examining rooms of the pioneer practice were located on the ground floor along the corridor of the Steele Wing of the school of medicine at UVA. During the initial years, the practice was substantially identified with the treatment of patients and scientific research.
