A book covering developing techniques in robotic surgery won first prize in the 2009 BMA Medical Book Awards.

Written by two leading academics at the George Washington University Hospital in the USA, the book Robotic Surgery: Theory and Operative Technique by Farid Gharagozloo and Farzad Najam, beat 684 other entries for the prestigious award. Dr Vivienne Nathanson, Head of Science and Ethics at the BMA, said the two authors deserved the highest of praise for their unique reference book, which provided a complete overview of the techniques used in robotic surgery.
