...then this is the book for you.
Dr. David Redwine, one of the world's leading authorities on the diagnosis and groundbreaking excisional treatment of the disease, has released an honest, unflinching look at the questions and concerns regarding Endometriosis.
The author takes on the myths and fallacies that continue to surround the illness, and debunks the inaccuracies that have persisted for decades (and continue to be promoted by many in the lay and professional communities today). Thought provoking, intelligent and comprehensive, this book has the bravery to question the flawed status quo that continues to shroud Endometriosis and offers frank, accurate answers - based on a lifetime of expert treatment and research - in response.
So-called "conventional wisdom" about Endometriosis has largely failed the global patient population for generations. Until we question the roots of this failure and reject the misinformation that is so obviously wrong yet continues to be comfortably repeated, Endometriosis will continue to be misdiagnosed, ineffectively treated, misunderstood, and ill recognized for the insidious disease that it actually is. What is wrong with the theories of origin, upon which most treatment options have been formed? Is over-dependence on drug companies shaping the future of available therapies for Endometriosis? Can any ob/gyn generalist superficially and incompletely remove the disease with any hopes of success at relief to the patient? Why aren't more practitioners interested in Endometriosis? Are hysterectomies, menopause or pregnancies the cures? If you want answers to these controversial questions as well as an authoritative guide to understanding the disease as a whole, then you must read this book.
"100 Q & As" simply must get into the hands of all patients, caregivers and practitioners alike if we are ever to make true progress into the understanding and gold standard treatment of Endometriosis.
