The global burden of genitourinary malignancies has been largely growing attributable to both ris-ing incidence and associated morbidity. While genitourinary malignancies often necessitate multi-disciplinary care and treatment, surgical management of these common disease processes remains a key and integral aspect of treatment for optimal oncologic outcomes. We intentionally focused on topics that would highlight essential surgical principles, ranging from salvage prostatectomy to retroperitoneal lymph node dissection to urinary diversions. Another key objective of our focused series was to critically review ongoing controversies about the comparative effectiveness of surgi-cal approaches.
