The first edition of this book was published in the year 2002. Since the last 5 years, I have been receiving continuous messages from the publishers that there is demand for the next edition with the availability of new knowledge in gynecology. Although I sincerely wanted to upgrade this book, it got postponed due to burden of heavy professional commitments and responsibilities.
Moreover, I developed new interest in genital tuberculosis which is a silent disease causing havoc to a female reproductive performance. My trip to special interest program held under the aegis of ESHRE on preservation of fertility among cancer survivors opened a new vision in gynecology. This produced intense enthusiasm in bringing on this edition. I hope this will be of some use in opening the minds of gynecologists who were at cross roads in dealing with special problems in gynecology. One can perceive an overtone of fertility protection in most of the chapters, since my special focus of interest in gynecology is the study of infertility.
Certain new authors have participated in bringing up this new edition. I thank once again all the authors who have participated in writing their chapters efficiently. My special thanks to Dr Prasad, Pathologist, Bengaluru Hospital, who contributed by taking out microscopic pictures that I sent in relation to my chapter on “Preventive Management of Infertility Caused by Treatment of Malignancy”. I acknowledge my thanks to Mrs Chitra B Prasad, for her dedicated secretarial help to the new chapters added to the new edition, and also to my brother, Maj CR Suresh and Dr Malini, Director, Mpower Institute of Clinical Research for helping me in editing this book.
I also acknowledge my special thanks to Dr DAJ Moore, Prof Zeev Blumenfeld, Prof Kutluk Oktay, and Dr Sherman Silber for giving permission to publish their scientific original pictures and extracts for my book.
