About this book


Urogynecology in Primary Care provides a clear and concise resource for primary care providers interested in the most rapidly growing area of women’s healthcare: urogynecology and female pelvic health. It offers an approachable, yet in-depth reference on the core topics—female incontinence, pelvic prolapse, pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction—specifically tailored to clinicians without formal surgical or specialty training. These complex subjects are distilled into a clinically useful guide, providing primary care providers with all of the tools necessary to begin managing these conditions in a cost-effective and time-efficient way.

Each aspect of diagnosis and treatment is presented in a clear and simple style, introducing streamlined strategies that can be implemented in any primary care setting. Original illustrations, key points at the end of each chapter, and ‘clinical pearls’ from experts in the field all help to make Urogynecology in Primary Care the most practical and user-friendly guide available.
