If you’re one of the thousands of people who have used my YouTube videos describing the basic techniques of simplified vaginal hysterectomy with an energy sealing device, then you’re going to love my new book Simplified Vaginal Hysterectomy: An Evidence-Based Approach.
I present my new and simple method of vaginal hysterectomy which makes use of the latest scientific evidence in a refreshing and clear, straightforward style. This is not a stuffy textbook. The text covers every aspect of vaginal hysterectomy, including a comparison of the vaginal approach to other routes, indications and contraindications, relevant anatomy and tools, preoperative and postoperative care, the basic technique as well as advanced techniques with tips and tricks for the difficult vaginal hysterectomy, as well as prevention and management of complications.
The book also describes simplified techniques for procedures commonly done at the time of vaginal hysterectomy, including anterior and posterior colporrhaphy, culdoplasty, perineorrhaphy, uterosacral colpopexy, midurethral sling, cystososcopy, salpingectomy, and oopherectomy.
Using the techniques I describe, you should be be able to perform more than 90% of all hysterectomies through the vaginal route.
The appendices cover several important topics, including a unique and revealing view of the history of vaginal hysterectomy, a comparison of other vaginal techniques to those in the book, a description of the technique of laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, and a discussion of enabling technologies in surgery and how this relates to the use of energy sealing devices in vaginal surgery. Also there is a detailed analysis of how to become quicker in surgery and how to improve surgical education for residents, including a detailed competency-based curriculum for vaginal hysterectomy.
This book is a must for anyone who performs or teaches vaginal surgery. It includes over 70 full color pictures or illustrations and over 270 pages, with 9 chapters and 9 appendices. We have priced it inexpensively at just $39 so that every resident and gynecologist has a chance to read it. If you like vaginal surgery, you will love this book.
