At over 600 pages, with more than 400 illustrations and photographs this text spans everything from embryology to the emotional trauma women undergo when their cervix is removed at hysterectomy.

This is also the most up-to-date text in the field - The editors have referenced work to 2006(and will continue to until the text goes to press), whilst still including all the classic research material and images where appropriate.
