ABC of Urology
Urological problems encompass a wide range of both distressing and potentially life threatening conditions and the number of general practice presentations is growing rapidly due to the increasing age of the population. Both reliable and comprehensive, the second edition of the ABC of Urology provides a thoroughly updated and revised guide to the speciality which highlights the recent advances in this area. Concentrating specifically on the treatment and diagnosis of the most common conditions, the emphasis is on shared care, where the skills of the primary care team are used in conjunction with hospital referral.
This concise, well-illustrated and highly practical text will provide the perfect reference for general practitioners and practice nurses, as well as junior doctors handling hospital referrals.
