Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Although benign in nature, elimination of the uterus and ovaries is unfortunately regarded as the final surgical treatment for most gynecological diseases. However, for women who want to preserve fertility and hope to become pregnant, demands for a more conservative approach are being explored. For this Special Issue, we aim to publish your clinical experience and research in achieving good outcomes for the preservation of fertility in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
