Chronic Pelvic Pain: Evaluation and Management presents a clinically oriented, multi-disciplinary approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of chronic pelvic pain in women — one of the most common problems encountered in the practice setting. The editors present this challenging and often vexing subject in a practical, user-friendly, highly illustrated text, including chapters on: physiology of pain; pain associated with endometriosis; pain associated with fibroids; surgical management; the role of office based surgery; the role of the psychiatrist in pain management; pelvic pain of urinary origin; pelvic pain of gastrointestinal origin. Designed to be incorporated into the every day practice, this book is a must for all clinicians in obstetrics-gynecology as well as for any physician involved in the health care of women.
