About the Journal

Each issue of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology is a complete symposium on one or two timely topics of interest in obstetrics and gynecology. For each quarterly issue, two prominent guest editors solicit contributions on key clinical topics of interest to practicing physicians. Procedures, current clinical problems, medical and surgical treatments, and effective diagnostic aids are all carefully reviewed in original articles. The result is an instructive resource that dispenses trustworthy clinical guidance that enhances your understanding of key areas of your practice.
