About the Authors
  • This well-illustrated new publication provides concise yet comprehensive practical information on the modern-day approach to the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. The author explains basic principles of reproductive physiology, before moving on to the medical causes of infertility. The full armory of techniques from IVF to ICSI and even newer technologies used to treat infertility in all its manifestations is described and detailed. The aim throughout is to explain issues clearly, simply, and directly in a way that will be understood by doctors, scientists, and nurses alike. By combining basic science and medical aspects, along with "how it is done" descriptions of techniques and medical interventions, this book offers an unsurpassed introductory account of this fast moving area.

    • Covers the full spectrum from basic science to clinical practice
    • Well-illustrated and full of practical advice
    • Describes the very latest assisted reproductive technologies

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Strongly [recommended] to public libraries and it would not be out of place in a medical or nursing library, where the readership interested in infertility would find the chapters on assisted conception to be particularly relevant."

    "The book is easy to read and its content is appropriate for health professionals and those with fertility problems alike."

    "[This book] can help in acquiring a quick and general view of the subject in a short period of time.... it may enable the doctor to address many issues with patients in a language they would find easy to understand." The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist
