As in the previous editions, this text is a single-source reference for
practitioners in both the inpatient and outpatient setting focusing on the
practical aspects of clinical diagnosis and patient management.
Contained within the text is a thorough review of all of
obstetrics and gynecology, including medical advances up to the time of
publication. More than 1000 diseases and disorders are included.
A continued emphasis on disease prevention and
evidence-based medicine remains paramount. In addition to diagnosis and
treatment of disease, pathophysiology is a major area of focus. The concise
format facilitates quick access.
A new and
improved layout will certainly be appreciated, with more than 500 anatomic
drawings, imaging studies, and diagrams as part of the basic text.
Medical students will find Current Diagnosis &
Treatment: Obstetrics & Gynecology to be an authoritative
introduction to the specialty and an excellent source for reference and
review. House officers will welcome the concise practical information for
commonly encountered health problems. Practicing obstetricians and
gynecologists, family physicians, internists, nurse practitioners, nurse
midwives, physician assistants, and other health care providers whose
practice includes women's health can use the book to answer questions that
arise in the daily practice of obstetrics and gynecology.
Medicine, including obstetrics and gynecology, is
undergoing rapid change, and every attempt has been made to keep the Lange
Series current. A great deal of effort has gone into checking the sources to
make sure that this book presents standards of care and acceptable modes of
treatment and diagnosis.
Everything that lies
between the covers of the eleventh edition of Current Diagnosis &
Treatment: Obstetrics & Gynecology has been updated, modified, and
modernized from the tenth edition.
