Description

For anyone who treats postmenopausal women, this latest edition of Rogerio Lobo's classic work combines the best from two well-known references: Menopause, and the second edition of Treatment of the Postmenopausal Woman. By adding significant discussions of the basic science behind menopause, it is possible to objectively assess the clinical value and limitations of current approaches to treatment and provide a basis and rationale for strategies that will result in better individualized and specialized care. Not only does the third edition discuss diagnosis and treatment of menopause but it covers biological, anatomical, physiological, pathobiological, and pharmacological aspects as well bringing together, in one source, all of the information needed to understand and treat postmenopausal conditions.

Review Text

For Menopause :
"This text is broad in its presentation. Readers who care for menopause-age women will find ample material on physiology, symptom treatment, and health promotion, with accompanying information on the supportive literature."
-Mary Ellen Rousseau, Yale College of Nursing for JOURNAL OF PSYCHOSOMATIC RESEARCH (December 2001)

For Treatment :
"This scholarly book covers virtually all aspects of postmenopausal health...Everything is here: the complexity of premature ovarian failure, reproductive options during the perimenopause, the variability in the symptoms of the perimenopause, and the physiology and treatment of hot flashes."
-Ego Seeman,, Massachusetts Medical Society, for THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE.

"Overall, this is an extremely useful and pertinent reference for any clinician providing care to peri- and postmenopausal women and competes as one of the most comprehensive and current menopause books available. The new edition is timely as we incorporate the WHI results and the lessons learned about hormonal therapy into our practices and our management of women in the menopause."
