Abstract

The ability to perform a variety of urologic procedures (urethrotomy, prostate surgery, penile prosthesis insertion, and bladder neck suspension) under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting is a significant advance in patient care. The surgical techniques are described that will allow the urologist to incorporate these procedures into practice.
