Doody's Core Titles® 2022

"This updated textbook presents advances from previous editions. It is the primary textbook for many FPMRS training programs and serves as an excellent reference for practitioners dealing with pelvic floor disorders. This book is a must-have for the intended audience, as there is no current competing resource that covers the material in such a comprehensive fashion with an extensive supplemental video library. The expertise of the editors and contributing authors, combined with the updated content and video library of surgical procedures, makes this book an essential addition to the literature."
