Reviews

  • "There is something worthwhile in every chapter, and even the most knowledgeable gynecologist should be able to pluck a pearl from the material...If the reader is looking for a comprehensive text on gynecology in one volume, this is it...Well worth the price."- JAMA, Review of the 4th Edition

    "This new edition of Comprehensive Gynecology contains an enormous amount of up-to-date knowledge and will certainly be a valuable resource for the resident in training and for the practicing gynecologist. All of us can learn much from reading this book. I would recommend physicians handling gynecologic problems or at least each department of gynecology to obtain access to a copy of this textbook."
