A core reference for residents and practitioners for over 40 years, Danforth's Obstetrics and Gynecology is now in its Tenth Edition—thoroughly revised and reorganized to provide complete, authoritative coverage of the modern clinical practice of obstetrics and gynecology. This edition has a new co-editor, Ingrid Nygaard, MD, a urogynecologist. A new urogynecology section includes chapters on urinary and fecal incontinence and overactive bladder. Other new chapters cover stillbirth and psychological disorders of pregnancy and the postpartum. This edition also features a modern two-color design, problem cases, boxed pearls and pitfalls, key points at the beginning of each chapter, and more algorithms, tables, and bulleted lists.

A companion Website offers the fully searchable text and an image bank which now allows any clinician, either in training or practice, to have in one place what they need to know.
