Essential Revision Notes for the FRCS (Urol) Books 1 & 2

In the past a Professor of Urology was frequently quoted as saying “the curriculum for urology is urology”. Indeed that it is, but that definition did not give trainees at the time the much needed framework for navigating through a...

Smith’s Textbook of Endourology, 2 Volume Set, 4th Edition
