Book Description

Uterine fibroids are a painful condition that may also create serious limitations on a patient's reproductive options. This new text from an acknowledged expert at a major regional referral center fully reviews the relevant diagnostic factors as well as the potential new medical treatments and current thinking about the various - sometimes controversial - surgical options available for management.

Print versions of this book also include access to the eBook version with links to procedural videos.
