Berek and Novak’s Gynecology is the gold standard text in general gynecology serving both as a comprehensive reference and a practical, clinically-oriented text. This reference is not only a must-have product for residents in training, but it offers information for the practicing physician. The book covers the entire spectrum of women's healthcare by offering guidance for the management of specific gynecologic conditions in eight sections. The first two sections cover principles of practice and initial assessment and the relevant basic science. The third section is on preventive and primary care for women, and the remaining five sections are directed at methods of diagnosis and management in general gynecology, operative general gynecology, urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery, reproductive endocrinology, and gynecologic oncology.

The following reviews from the previous edition: (Berek and Novak's Gynecology, 14th Edition)

     "In comparing this book to Stenchever's Comprehensive Gynecology, 4th edition (Mosby, 2001), which has been touted by some as the "Bible" of gynecology for residents, Berek and Novak's          seems to appeal to a wider range of training levels and offers a wider range of references (over 300 per chapter versus fewer than 50), as well as broader and more numerous author                      contributions. The 14th edition is structurally sound, comprehensive, and accessible."

                Andrea R. Hagemann, M.D.(Washington University School of Medicine) 

     "Berek and Novak's Gynecology still remains an excellent choice as a gynecology text or reference book, due to the expertise of the authors and editor."

       - JAMA. 2007;297:1602-1603


"The book goes above and beyond the objectives to provide a thorough and current review of gynecology."

"The book covers a wide range of topics, from anatomy and embryology to gynecologic malignancies and everything in between. It is a fantastic review of the current literature, and the color art is a great complement to the text."
"This should be on every gynecologist's bookshelf. It is an essential reference that covers all components of the practice."
