Excerpt from Clinical Gynaecology: Medical and Surgical; For Students and Practitioners
The impulse which has been given to the clinical teaching of medicine and surgery during the past ten years by the establishment of numerous post-graduate schools throughout the country has been communicated to recent text-books, in which the practical has largely superseded the theo retical. The practitioner at the present day is not only keenly alive to the fact that immense advances have been made in medicine since his student days, but is filled with the laudable ambition to keep abreast of them. To enable him to do this, information must be imparted to him in a clear, concise, and more or less dogmatic form. This is the object aimed at in the present volume, which represents the combined experience of a number of clinical teachers selected by the former editor as men who, while dis posed to be conservative, were none the less progressive and free from hobbies. The success which has attended the publication of the volumes of the International Clinics led the publishers to believe that a work on gynaecology treated from a clinical stand-point would find a place in the voluminous literature of diseases of women.
Owing to the untimely death of Dr. Keating, the completion of the work devolved upon the present editor, who has as far as possible carried out the plans and wishes of his lamented predecessor. While seeking to preserve that coherence which is desirable in a text-book, he has in the main allowed each contributor to consult his own judgment with regard to the arrangement and phraseology of his article, believing that in this way the individuality of each would be best preserved. In view of the needs of the student and busy practitioner, especial attention is given to diagnosis and treatment, the sections on pathology being less extended than in most text-books on gynaecology.
