Summary "This book is a user-friendly guide to procedures in women's health for primary care physicians. The spectrum of office-based procedures is covered, including pelvic examination; contraceptive procedures; and dermatologic procedures, both cosmetic and non-cosmetic. Key information is readily accessible, and chapters present indications, risks, and decision trees for guidance on how to proceed based on results. Procedures are detailed step-by-step. The accompanying illustrations add clarity, and imaging is provided where appropriate. Case studies facilitate the integration of procedures into clinical practice. Coding and reimbursement are outlined as well. This practical book also features patient handouts that explain procedures and address complications. Lists of disposable and non-disposable supplies are ideal references for assistants. Physicians, residents, and other providers of women's health care will find this text an indispensable aid for learning new procedures and improving existing skills"--Provided by publisher
