Beschreibungen

Half of all women will experience some form of debilitating pelvic disease or discomfort during their lifetime. These will include chronic urinary tract infections, various kinds of incontinence, pelvic floor prolapse, and interstitial cystitis. There has been a tendency to dismiss many symptoms of these disorders as an inevitable consequence of the aging process or, worse still, as indicators of underlying psychological disease. This concise new book suggests a new approach to urinary tract disorders is long overdue. It sympathetically explains what these diseases are and what women can do to get themselves properly diagnosed and treated.
A sympathetic book suggesting a new approach to commonly suffered urinary tract disorders is long overdue. The author extends her expertise to women distressed by these disorders. She explains what they are and how patients can get properly diagnosed and treated.
In the course of a lifetime, more than half of all women will experience some form of debilitating pelvic disease or discomfort, including chronic urinary tract infections, various kinds of incontinence, pelvic floor prolapse, and interstitial cystitis. Surprisingly, until recently there has been only scant attention paid to this very common group of disorders, considering the vast population of sufferers. What’s more, doctors have long tended to dismiss many symptoms of urinary tract disorders as an inevitable consequence of the aging process or, worse still, as indicators of underlying psychological disease.
In this concise, clearly written, and sympathetic new book, Elizabeth Kavaler suggests that a new approach to UT disorders is long overdue. One of the surprisingly small number of female urologists practicing in the U.S., Dr. Kavaler explains what these diseases are and what patients can do to get themselves diagnosed and treated properly. But more than that, she extends an expert, sympathetic, and skilled hand to those who’ve been distressed, isolated, and embarrassed for too long.

A sympathetic book suggesting a new approach to urinary tract disorders is long overdue. Half of all women will experience some form of urinary tract disease or discomfort during their lifetime. For too long there has been a tendency to dismiss many symptoms and associated disorders as an inevitable consequence of the aging process or, worse still, as indicators of underlying psychological disease. Until recently there has been only scant attention paid to this very common group of disorders, considering the vast population of sufferers. This concise book is written by one of the few female urologists practicing in the U.S. and in it she explains what these diseases are and what patients can do to get themselves properly diagnosed and treated. But more than that, the author extends her expertise to women who’ve been distressed, isolated, and embarrassed for too long.
