The only gynecology resource that combines a full-color text and a procedural atlas—revised and updated

Part medical text, part surgical atlas, Williams Gynecology is written by the renowned team of ob-gyn clinicians at Dallas’ Parkland Hospital who are responsible for the landmark Williams Obstetrics. The new edition of Williams Gynecology maintains the consistent tone, leading-edge clinical insights, and quality illustrations of the successful first edition, while expanding and refreshing its content to keep pace with the most recent developments in this dynamic field.

The many important topics covered in Williams Gynecology are evidence-based, yet the book is specifically designed as a practical quick-reference guide, aided throughout by helpful teaching points. Reflecting the latest clinical perspectives and research, the second edition features outstanding new coverage of minimally invasive procedures, robotics, and gynecologic anatomy.


  • Two resources in one—full-color medical text and surgical atlas—conveniently surveys the entire spectrum of gynecologic disease, including general gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, urogynecology, and gynecologic oncology
  • Atlas of gynecologic surgery contains 450 figures that illustrate operative techniques
  • Unique consistent text design for an efficient approach to diagnosis and treatment
  • Strong procedure orientation covers a vast array of surgical operations, which are illustrated in detail
  • Evidence-based discussion of disease evaluation reinforces and supports the clinical relevance of the book’s diagnostic and treatment methods
  • Distinguished authorship from the same Parkland Hospital-based team which edited Williams Obstetrics—the leading reference in obstetrics for more than a century
  • Newly illustrated gynecologic anatomy chapter created with the surgeon in mind to emphasize critical anatomy for successful surgery
  • New coverage of minimally invasive procedures and robotics, the latest procedures in gynecologic oncology, and in-vitro fertilization
  • Numerous illustrations, photographs, tables, and treatment algorithms

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Shanks, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of a comprehensive, evidence-based gynecology textbook.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a book on gynecology that is as comprehensive as its obstetrics counterpart — Williams Obstetrics, 23rd edition, Cunningham et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2010). It uses a clear and concise evidence-based format to deliver information.
Audience: The intended audience includes all who practice gynecology. Residents and physicians will find this book incredibly helpful. Nurse practitioners and family practitioners also may find it beneficial. The authors encompass a wide breadth of experience.
Features: The first five sections cover, respectively, general gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, oncology, anatomy and perioperative issues. Section 6 is an atlas of gynecological surgery that provides details on specific procedures. The overall layout of the book adds tremendously to its function. For example, in section 1, readers can get information about issues such as abnormal uterine bleeding and pelvic masses. They can read the excellent informative material, including the thoroughly researched topics. Illustrations and tables highlight the important points and clarify the text. Frequently in gynecology, there may be multiple options — specifically surgical — available for treatment. Readers can then turn to section 6 to look up specifics of a procedure. It is section 6 that sets this book apart and will make it a go-to source for residents, especially when they have to assist on a case that they have never seen.
Assessment: This is a beautiful and comprehensive book on gynecology. The emphasis in all sections is on evidence-based medicine, and the last section on specific surgical procedures is the highlight of the book. This will soon be a go-to resource for resident education.
