Conquering Bladder and Prostate Problems: The Authoritative Guide for Men and Women






Conquering Bladder and Prostate Problems: The Authoritative Guide for Men and Women
by Jerry G., M.D. Blaivas,

This book answers just about every question the lay reader might ask about urology, covering urinary incontinence, cystitis, prostate problems, and other bladder problems. Blaivas, a leading urologist (New York Hosp.-Cornell Medical Ctr.), writes clearly and straightforwardly about matters of grave concern to anyone who suffers from urologic problems, whether bothersome, embarrassing, or painful. Blaivas explains how these conditions and their complications are diagnosed, treated, and controlled. Highly recommended for hospital and patient education collections.?James Swanton, Harlem Hosp.

From Booklist
The subtitle is accurate: this is for men and women, and, because of Blaivas' clinical and academic background, it is indeed authoritative. Blaivas describes the anatomy of the relevant structures clearly and gives detailed accounts of symptoms, tests and diagnoses, diseases and problems, and medical and surgical treatments. Often he illustrates typical situations in imaginary dialogues between patient and doctor, and the fact that the patient not infrequently sarcastically blurts out "Thanks a lot" says something about both the condition under discussion (i.e., it is not a clear-cut situation) and Blaivas' personality--he knows that patients are human. Doctors are human, too, and Blaivas encourages patients to ask specific questions and obtain second opinions. He also disposes of myths, such as "eight glasses of liquid a day are a must," and forthrightly states when his approach differs from those of other urologists. William Beatty-

5 out of 5 stars This is by far the most informative book I have ever read, September 9, 1998

  Reviewer: A reader

Blaivas does something here that no other urologist has ever done. He has written a book that answers any and every question, but he has written it in a way that is easy to understand. He even intertwines humor, so rare in a informational medical book. His compassion, understanding, and extensive knowledge far surpassed my expectations. If you have even thought about buying this book, then do it. It will help.

Sincerely, Matthew
