Goldfarb, a pioneer in gynecological laser surgery, provides an in-depth, comprehensive guide to avoiding what is the most frequently performed--and often unnecessary--operation in North America. While Goldfarb says, "doctors don't advocate hysterectomy for women because they are a bad lot . . . but because it is 'their operation'," he does emphasize that an "indicated" hysterectomy does not equal a "necessary" hysterectomy. He describes all treatment options and alternatives including hysteroscopy, laser myomectomy, and laser surgery. Also excellent is his coverage of endometriosis, fibroid tumors, cervical cancer, and other medical problems that often lead up to this surgery. Without giving false hope, this book helps women make informed decisions on this radical operation. Highly recommended for general and medical collections.
