An on-the-spot reference for clinicians who deal with obstetric and gynecologic diseases and disorders.
Written by residents and attending physicians in obstetrics and gynecology at The Johns Hopkins University, this popular manual covers almost every clinical situation in obstetrics, high-risk obstetrics, gynecology, reproductive endocrinology, infertility, and gynecologic oncology.
The easy-to-use outline format, modeled after The Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, helps busy clinicians find information quickly. Key changes for the 5th edition include a breaking apart chapter 16 into 3 distinct chapters; paring down the primary care chapter to better align it with current standards of practice; and the addition of a chapter on patient safety.
