"Any urologist or gynecologist with an interest in female pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic prolapse, incontinence, voiding dysfunction, etc. will find this a handy book. Even those well versed in this area could gain from the thorough review of outcomes and the varied perspectives of the editors -- a well known gynecologist, a urologist, and a gastroenterologist. As the field of female pelvic medicine continues to grow, books such as this are timely. Combining the expertise of practitioners from different specialties leads to a well rounded book that should serve as a handy reference for the experienced surgeon while at the same time providing primary information for those just acquainting themselves with this field. This book serves as a useful contribution to the evolving field of female pelvic medicine." (Howard B. Goldman, Doody Enterprises, Inc. - COPYRIGHT 2006)
