The only gynecology textbook to combine a comprehensive medical reference and a full color surgical atlas in one beautifully illustrated volume

A Doody's Core Title for 2017!

Williams Gynecology, Third Edition is specifically designed as a practical quick-reference guide for practicing gynecologists and residents, but it will also appeal to clerkship medical students, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Williams Gynecology provides comprehensive coverage of the full spectrum of gynecologic healthcare and disease management, including benign general gynecology; reproductive endocrinology, infertility, and menopause; female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery; and gynecologic oncology. The surgical management sections include Aspects of Gynecologic Surgery and Atlas of Gynecologic Surgery, which covers Surgeries of Benign Gynecologic Conditions, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Surgeries for Female Pelvic Reconstruction, and Surgeries for Gynecologic Malignancies.

Williams Gynecology, Third Edition is beautifully illustrated, with hundreds of original drawings for both the surgical atlas and medical reference portions. Each chapter follows a practical template for a consistent approach to diagnosis and treatment. With its extensive use of treatment algorithms, differential diagnosis boxes, and other elements, this book is also a reliable quick-reference. The third edition has been revised to keep up with new and expanded content on the latest topics, including minimally invasive procedures, benign gynecology, and the subspecialties of urogynecology, gynecologic oncology, and reproductive endocrinology. The authors are internationally known practitioners affiliated with Parkland Memorial Hospital/University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, and the National Institutes for Health.
