Description:

The new edition of this canonical text on male reproductive medicine will cement the book's market-leading position. Practitioners across many specialties - including urologists, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, medical endocrinologists and many in internal medicine and family practice will see men with suboptimal fertility and reproductive problems. Because the field is young and rapidly evolving, those with advanced training in male reproductive medicine continue to populate open faculty positions in academic centers, creating exponential growth in the field and the need for timely, well considered information. While several recent books provide targeted 'cookbooks' for those in a male reproductive laboratory, or quick reference for practicing generalists, the modern, comprehensive reference providing both a background for male reproductive medicine as well as clinical practice information based on that foundation has been lacking until now. The book has been extensively revised with a particular focus on modern molecular medicine. Appropriate therapeutic interventions are highlighted throughout.
