About this book


Interest in pelvic floor reconstruction has grown rapidly in recent years with increasing collaboration between urologists, gynecologists and colorectal surgeons, making this an area of interdisciplinary care. Female Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery, reflecting this multi-disciplinary field, is edited by Stuart L. Stanton, Urogynaecologist at St George's Hospital Medical School, University of London, and Philippe Zimmern, leading US Urologist at the University of Texas, with contributions by internationally known and experienced clinicians.
The book covers the surgical anatomy, urinary and faecal incontinence and their treatment, prolapse surgery, fistulae and post-operative management. With a practical slant on operative techniques, this book is well illustrated, up-to-date and authoritative.
