436 pages . 

This book is intended for the general and family practitioners, as well as for 
gynecologists, specialists in gynecological surgery, general surgeons, urologists and all 
other surgical specialists that perform procedures in or around the female pelvis, in 
addition to intensives and all other specialities and health care professionals who care 
for women before, during or after hysterectomy. While removal of the uterus using 
newer techniques such as laparoscopic and robotic hysterectomy attract the most 
attention of both the patients as well as the practitioners, still, for most women,
especially in low resources countries, the conventional hysterectomy, abdominal or 
vaginal, is considered the intervention of choice for removing the uterus. Such 
techniques have withstood the test of time and can be performed in almost any small 
or midsized surgical hospital without the need to travel to distant specialty hospitals.
It is the aim of this book to review the recent achievements of the research community 
regarding the field of gynecologic surgery and hysterectomy as well as highlight future 
directions and where this field is heading. While no single volume can adequately cover 
the diversity of issues and facets in relation to such a common and important procedure 
such as hysterectomy, this book will attempt to address the pivotal topics especially in 
regards to safety, risk management as well as pre- and post-operative care.
Finally, we dedicate this book to our wonderful prior, current and future patients for 
whom we strive for excellence and beyond, as we care for them with full and most 
respect and love as they are our daughters, sisters and mothers, all the time.
