This is a new edition of one of the modern classics of gynecological surgery. Providing an extensive and beautifully illustrated guide to laparoscopic and hysteroscopic techniques, the book has been extensively revised and updated since publication of the Second Edition. There are few texts that so adequately provide in-depth information on minimally invasive gynaecologic surgery. This informative and thorough work of reference provides both practicing surgeons and trainees with an atlas, a textbook of gynecology, and a surgical manual. The coverage is comprehensive, including extensive sections on gynaecologic oncology, urogynecology, basic principles, and instrumentation. Complications are highlighted with authoritative guidance on how to avoid and manage them.
