Berek & Novak’s Gynecology, 15th edition, is presented in eight sections. The first section, Principles of Practice, includes the initial assessment of the gynecologic patient, the history and physical examination, and communication skills. This section addresses ethical principles of patient care, quality assessment and improvement, and the epidemiology of gynecologic conditions.
The second section, Basic Principles, summarizes the scientific basis for the specialty—anatomy and embryology, molecular biology and genetics, and reproductive physiology. The third section, Preventive and Primary Care, emphasizes the importance of primary health care for women, which has evolved to address preventive care, screening, family planning, sexuality, and common psychiatric problems. The fourth section, General Gynecology, reviews benign diseases of the female reproductive tract, the evaluation of pelvic infections, uterine fibroids, pain, intraepithelial diseases, the management of early pregnancy loss and ectopic pregnancy, and the evaluation of benign breast disease. The fifth section, Operative General Gynecology, covers perioperative care and the operative management of benign gynecologic conditions using endoscopy, hysterectomy and robotics. The sixth section is Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery. The seventh section, Reproductive Endocrinology, summarizes the major disorders affecting the growth, development, and function of women from puberty through menopause. The eighth section, Gynecologic Oncology, covers malignant diseases of the female reproductive tract and breast cancer.
I gratefully acknowledge the many individuals who contributed to this book. I extendmythanks to Tim Hengst, an outstanding medical illustrator, for the excellent illustrations, anatomic drawings, and thematic designs. I am especially grateful to my talented content editor, Deborah Berek, who diligently evaluated and assisted the entire project from the initial manuscripts through page proofs. I appreciate the many people at Lippincott Williams & Wilkins who helped me, especially Charley Mitchell, whom I consider the best editor in medical book publishing and with whom Iworked for over a quarter of a century. I extend my gratitude to Sonya Seigafuse and NicoleWalz for their dedication and commitment to enthusiastically and skillfully shepherd the manuscript during the editorial process. I acknowledge the outstandingwork of Chris Miller who diligently and expertly worked with me to accomplish the final page layout and formatting of this book. I acknowledge the support of my past mentors—Dean Sherman Mellinkoff, Drs. J. Donald Woodruff,Kenneth J. Ryan, J. George Moore, and William J. Dignam—and I extendmygratitude to my current colleagues Drs. Isaac Schiff, Gautam Chaudhuri, Neville F. Hacker, Beverly Mitchell, and Dean Philip Pizzo. Each of these physicians and scholars graciously provided me with essential guidance and encouragement. My special thanks to Laurie Lacob, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks for their support of the StanfordWomen’s Cancer Center—and for their help, encouragement, and friendship that stimulated this project.
