In order to do this I have eliminated some portions of the text and introduced that which was newer and better. The changes, for the most part, have been confined to technics, as there have been few changes along other lines such as would be taken cognizance of in a work of this scope and character. Conspicuous among these innovations in technics is the operation of Goffe for extensive cystocele and that of Watkins for post-climacteric prolapse of the uterus. A number of new half-tone plates have been added to the illustrations, besides some cuts which have been substituted for others less desirable. For ready reference and as an aid to the student and busy practitioner, a regional index of symptoms has been appended to the body of the work. Most of the work of revision has been done by my son, Dr. E. M. Gilliain, Professor of Gynecology, Starling-Ohio Medical College. Expressing my appreciation of the kindly reception accorded to the first edition of this work, I can only hope that the present revised edition will meet with equal or greater favor.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
