Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Testicular cancer is a disease with excellent cure rates, especially if discovered early in the disease course. Treatment can include a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. In this chapter, we discuss the role of and the evidence for robot-assisted retroperitoneal lymph node dissection in the management of testicular cancer. We conclude with an overview of the robotic surgical technique.
