About this book


Surgery in the pelvis freely crosses the boundaries between the disciplines of general and gynecology surgery, colorectal surgery, orthopedic surgery, vasular surgery and neurosurgery. Touching on this wide range of disciplines, this book, written by members of the Division of Gynecologic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic, is a practical guide to the performance of pelvic surgery. It documents the various surgical techniques, described in a step-by-step manner and supplemented by informatic illustrations. The book moreover includes detailed descriptions of preoperative management and assessment, intraoperative management, postoperative care, and intraoperative and postoperative complications, including protocols for their management. Finally, reconstructive, plastic, and other special surgical techniques are also covered. Despite its breadth, the book is most of all a source of practical assistance to the surgeon, providing explicit details on how to handle specific problems. It describes the state of the art of techniques in use and refined at the Mayo Clinic.
