The first edition of Williams Obstetrics was published over a
century ago. Since then, the editors of this seminal text have presented a
comprehensive and evidenced-based discussion of obstetrics. Patterned after
our patriarch, Williams Gynecology provides a thorough presentation
of gynecology's depth and breadth. In Section 1, general gynecology topics
are covered. Sections 2 provides chapters covering reproductive
endocrinology and infertility. The developing field of Female Pelvic
Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is presented in Section 3. In Section 4,
gynecologic oncology is discussed.
gynecologic information has been offered within the format of either a
didactic text or a surgical atlas. However, because the day-to-day
activities of a gynecologist blends these two, so too did we. The initial
four sections of our book describe the evaluation and medical treatment of
gynecologic problems. The remaining two sections focus on the surgical
patient. Section 5 offers detailed anatomy and a discussion of perioperative
consideration. Our final section presents an illustrated atlas for the
surgical correction of conditions described in Sections 1 through 4.
Although discussions of disease evaluation and treatment are evidence based,
our text strives to assist the practicing gynecologist and resident.
Accordingly, chapters are extensively complemented by illustrations,
photographs, diagnostic algorithms, and treatment tables.
