Book Description

Endometriosis is on a worldwide increase and carries with it serious implications for women's reproductive health. Endometriosis in Clinical Practice brings together international experts to demonstrate what is known about the condition and the corresponding clinical implications for the patient suffering from it. Unlike many other books on this subject that are geared towards the patient or excessively focused on research, this one also answers the questions and meets the needs of the diagnosing physician. With the aid of color illustrations, the book highlights clinical topics such as epidemiology, assessment of health status, and endometriosis and ART. It covers everything you need to know about the disease, its diagnosis, and its management.
