"Walters and Barber (obstetrics and gynecology and surgery, Cleveland Clinic) bring together a group of American obstetrics and gynecology surgeons and specialists who offer a video atlas for gynecologic surgeons and obstetrician-gynecologist trainees to hysterectomy procedures for benign diseases like uterine bleeding and fibroids, dysmenorrhea, and endometriosis. They address the surgical techniques for abdominal, vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic hysterectomy and hysterectomy alternatives, with case presentations and illustrations, as well as the historical evolution of uterine surgery and hysterectomy, important pelvic anatomy, changing trends and indications, the pros and cons of different routes of hysterectomy and oophorectomy, evidence-based discussion of preoperative and postoperative care, strategies for preventing and managing complications, and teaching and learning gynecologic surgery. The DVD contains case-based videos of procedures."
