From the reviews:
"The authors wanted the book to translate the concept of a center approach to diseases of the pelvic floor where experts from all the three specialties that manage pelvic floor disorders provide their input. Indeed the authors were successful in getting together experts from their centers to contribute to a nicely organized book that translate their vision. Overall this is a well organized book that fulfills the vision of combining all the diseases of pelvic floor disorders in one text. I like the idea of grouping the disease entities under common syndromes to all the organ systems. I think that the cross talk among the three different specialties that deal with pelvic floor disorders will definitely help our patient population and I hope that the concept of a unified center/specialty will become a widely adapted practice pattern for the same reason."

"The information provided in this publication will be of interest for an interdisciplinary approach to pelvic floor diseases; helpful not only for urologists but for all practitioners involved in the treatment of these patients." (Paul Meria, European Urology Today, August 2006, page 33)
"This book deals with the pelvic floor as a whole, mixing urologic, gynaecologic and colorectal situations. This is in accordance with the multidisciplinary approach many centres try to set up today for the greatest benefit of the patients. ... it could be of interest for the general surgeon or the trainee, looking for an easy and complete overview of this field."
