Science merged with clinical practice towards relieving the symptoms of endometriosis

Endometriosis is frequently intensely painful and can lead to infertility causing disruption of women's lives and relationships. It can be a devastating condition. Major progress has been made in recent years on understanding the causes of endometriosis and developing effective clinical therapies.



Endometriosis: Science and Practice fuses the scientific and clinical approaches. It marries the characteristics of the disease, how it presents and possible causes with medical and surgical approaches to pain therapy, and wider aspects of the disease.



Broad in outlook, focused in application, Endometriosis: Science and Practice covers:

Pathogenesis Disease Characterization Biological basis of Endometriosis Diagnosis Medical Therapies Surgical Therapies Infertility Associated Disorders

The stellar cast of contributors, led by world-leading editors from the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific, have produced a contemporary tour-de-force that should be on the bookshelf of anyone who provides medical care for women.
