About this book


Obstetrics is a multifaceted specialty relating closely to other branches in medicine.  Since pregnant and non-pregnant women are subject to the same diseases, physicians must be well versed surrounding various ailments.  Extensive knowledge of pregnancy physiology and obstetric disorders pathophysiology must then be applied improving perinatal outcome.

Non-Obstetrics Surgery During Pregnancy: A Comprehensive Guide is conceptualized from an identified gap in education and fills a major void as one of the few texts which provides a comprehensive evidence-based approach to the management of major non-obstetric surgical procedures. Surgery for non-obstetric causes during pregnancy is not uncommon and a timely topic.The book is written “cookbook style” and geared towards most specialties. The intention of this book is to provide a compendium that will assist clinicians by guiding their management of pregnant patients and hopefully improving outcomes for both mother and baby.
