Overview

Written by recognized leaders within the field, this practical text is useful primarily to the clinical gynecologist who performs laser surgery in the lower female genital tract and intra abdominally where applicable. The initial chapters pertain to the basic understanding and applications of laser physics and safety for the clinician. The next section focuses on "how to do it", and the final chapters deal with photodynamic therapy in gynecology, credentialing, and how to establish a laser program. A glossary in the back of the book contains laser terminology as well as scientific notation.
