In the December 2021 issue of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology there are two symposia topics:

Hormone Use in Gynecology

Hormone replacement therapy for various gynecologic conditions, but particularly to manage menopausal symptoms, remains a challenge for gynecologists.  Dr. Nanette Santora is an authority on this topic, and she has selected an excellent group of experts to update recommendations.  The result is a timely and valuable symposium for all clinicians.  

Gene Therapy in Obstetrics:

Obstetricians have long been faced with the challenge of caring for two patients, the mother and her fetus. With the introduction of ultrasound, the fetus became a visible patient, and the opportunities to evaluate fetal condition and treat the fetus were advanced. Intrauterine transfusions and fetal surgery have improved perinatal outcomes for a number of important disorders. In this symposium, Dr. Ronald Wapner and Dr. Mary Norton, distinguished pioneers in prenatal diagnosis and fetal therapy, have assembled world leaders to describe the next frontier of fetal treatment, prenatal gene therapy. Our patients will be asking us about the potential to treat these serious problems, and this symposium will help us answer their questions.
