Description: This is a new book devoted exclusively to the surgical procedures encountered in male infertility. The contributors each present their own unique areas of expertise.

Purpose: The purpose is to present indications for, and details of, various surgical procedures surrounding male infertility problems. In recent years a number of technical advances have expanded the scope of this field, and not only are techniques described but also the expected outcome.

Audience: This book will be especially useful for urologists-in-training and for practicing urologists who wish to update their knowledge in this field. Additionally, this book will be a valuable resource for academic urology departments and reproductive center libraries.

Features: The book makes liberal use of excellent photographs, lucid illustrations, and, when appropriate, tabular information to present the material. Different surgical approaches to accomplish the same end are presented in separate chapters by appropriate experts. The book is supplemented by a section on training in various aspects of microsurgical disease.

Assessment: This is a very useful book for urologic surgeons and urologists-in-training who wish to familiarize themselves with the most up-to-date surgical procedures dealing with male infertility. Not only is surgical technique described, but expected results and success rates are also presented.
