Description / Abstract:


We are proud to present a third edition of the Textbook of Female Urology and Urogynecology and would like to take this opportunity to thank all those of you who have contributed. We are particularly grateful to our section editors and appreciate how much time and effort they have put in to making this an authoritative comprehensive reference book which will hopefully appeal to both urologists and gynecologists as well as other healthcare professionals involved in the management of pelvic floor problems on both sides of the Atlantic and elsewhere in the world.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed to the second edition of Textbook of Female Urology and Urogynecology which was awarded first prize by the Society of Authors and the Royal Society of Medicine as the best new edition of an edited medical book. We felt that this was a great honor and reflects well on all of you. It is of course this success which has stimulated us to produce this third edition which we hope will be even more successful than the previous two. Once again we have involved the group of authors, some of whom have an international reputation and others are new comers to the field, which we hope has produced a good balance of knowledge, expertise, and writing skills without the polarization of ideas that occurs in many textbooks as a natural product of the contributors' geography, training, and interests. Once again our mission was to produce a comprehensive textbook which would identify past contributions to the field and document and analyze the present state of the art as well as serve as a foundation for future developments in the field.

The text is arranged in sections enabling the reader to access areas of interest and extensive bibliographies are intended to facilitate further study of the subject. The section on surgery has been formatted to serve as both an evidence-based text and atlas and is intended to provide information pertaining to the decision making process as well as the technical aspects of the surgical procedures. We recognize that in this rapidly advancing field it is difficult to remain completely up to date.

As editors we are truly grateful to our publishers who have facilitated the production of this book and once again would like to thank all our authors for the time they have sacrificed outside their working hours to make this project successful. Finally we are most grateful to our patients who place their trust in all of us every day and we hope that this textbook will contribute to their quality of care and to the ability of those who will treat them in the future.
