Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pediatric urology has been developed by many pediatric urologists and pediatric surgeons from all over the world. This Special Issue on Urology in Pediatrics Update focuses primarily on open and endoscopic surgical techniques. The most noteworthy advance in pediatric urology has been the development of minimally invasive surgery, including endourology, laparoscopy, retroperitoneoscopy, and robotic surgery, which have the advantages of reducing postoperative pain, improving the cosmetic results, and reducing the time of postoperative hospitalization. The authors are invited to discuss the state-of-the-art knowledge on the main pediatric urology techniques, based on literature review and their clinical experience.

Dr. Giovanni Cobellis
Guest Editor
