Six years have passed since the last edition of Adult and Pediatric Urology, during which the field of urology has changed dramatically. Laparoscopic urologic surgery, in its infancy in 1996, now plays an important role in many adult and pediatric surgical procedures. The chapter "Adult Laparoscopic Urology," nearly 100 pages long, details general laparoscopic techniques, the many urological procedures currently performed, comparisons of results with open techniques, and the use of robotics and virtual reality, the last of which will probably deserve its own chapter in the next edition.
