Applied Anatomy For Obstetrics and Gynecology is a book that combines the basic subject 'Anatomy' and the applied or clinical subject 'Obstetrics and Gynecology' for postgraduate students and clinicians. It has 91 pages, 14 chapters, and 37 illustrations which explain why a clinician does what he does in treating his patients, or the anatomical principles underlying the treatment of Obstetric and Gynecological disorders. The book has an advantage over the conventional books of applied Anatomy, in that it is written by a clinician with more than 37 years of experience, both of managing patients and teaching students. He has drawn the illustrations the way he does while teaching his students to drive a point home.

Anatomy is a fascinating subject. But so are Gynecology and Obstetrics. Like everybody else, I started with Anatomy as a graduate student. I wanted to do a career in Anatomy then. But when I started clinical subjects, I knew I wanted to spend a lifetime as a Gynecologist and Obstetrician. But I did not forget my first passion. I also remembered that Anatomy formed the basis of all surgical and many medical subjects. My knowledge of Anatomy made understanding Gynecological and obstetric conditions fun, and application of surgical procedures scientific. In a way, Gynecology and Obstetrics made my understanding of relevant Anatomy deeper and more clinically oriented. I am aware that there are a host of books on clinical Anatomy, some of them quite popular. However they devote much more space to subjects other than Gynecology and Obstetrics. They are also written by Anatomists who do understand clinical implications, but perhaps not in such depth as a Gynecologist and Obstetrician. As a clinician and a medical teacher, I always enjoyed teaching the underlying principles of Anatomy to my students, and I sincerely hope they enjoyed learning those too. I have drawn all the illustrations in this book as I draw them while teaching my students. They probably lack what a professional artist would have put into them. But they serve the purpose of driving the point home, and that is what I want more than anything else. If not, at least it should have enriched their experience of learning. I felt that I had learned all these fine points while treating my patients, and it was obligatory that I put these things down as a gesture to repay for the efforts of all great people whose work was the basis on which I based my learning. After all, it is a give and take. One takes what others before one have contributed to science, and then one gives back something that will perhaps help others learn better. This book is the result of this thought process. I hope it achieves what I want it to - making learning Gynecology and Obstetrics fun and enriching at the same time.

A book to explain why obstetricians and gynecologists do what they do.
