Description

This textbook provides a comprehensive review of all the common and less often encountered pediatric and adolescent gynecology problems in daily practice, both in the ambulatory as well as in the surgical setting. This new edition has been updated to keep it closely aligned to what general gynecologists or family physicians will want to know when dealing with a paediatric or adolescent patient, with accompanying videos.
