Printed Copy of the Golden 4th Edition

Following the success of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd edition of the Textbook of Gynaecological Oncology published in 2009, 2012 and 2016, the 4th edition has taken this highly acclaimed publication a step further.


Original chapters were revised by all authors, adapted according to feedbeck on the first and second editions and the new increased content reflects the evolving needs of the community of gynae-oncologists in training.


In this edition, new authors have worked on a number of new topics. The whole book is up to date with the most recent literature in the field, and features new demonstrative figures summarizing the operations step by step.

A special section for each disease was created, thus ensuring a systematical learning experience.

State-of-the-Art Reference in the field

So many of the world’s leading experts have voluntarily contributed state-of-the-art chapters in a remarkable turnaround time. As one of the editors, I have read just about every chapter and can vouch for the clinical excellence and up-to-date status...It is a credit to all the societies involved and a fantastic asset for trainees in all disciplines of gynaecological oncology. I think it will also be a wonderful asset for established specialists, who will find its state-of-the-art references an invaluable resource.
