New thinking and advances in surgery have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of common gynecologic conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, utero-vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, ovarian neoplasms, and adhesions. In treating these conditions, there is an increasing realization that fertility preservation should be a principal aim whenever possible.

As part of this change of emphasis, reproductive surgery is becoming reconnected with mainstream gynecologic surgery. Reconstructive and Reproductive Surgery in Gynecology is a ground-breaking book from a highly distinguished editorial team. Illustrated with schematic artwork and color photographs of operative procedures, it educates surgeons on the techniques and procedures now needed in both reconstructive and reproductive surgery in gynecology.
