One of the most exciting developments in modern Chinese medicine is the integration of traditional medical knowledge with modern biomedicine. The center for this important and stimulating work is Shanghai, and one of its best known proponents is Yu Jin, M.D.
Drawing on four decades of experience as a clinician, researcher, and teacher of obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Yu has written a handbook for practitioners which presents an integrated approach to obstetric and gynecologic disorders, the first of its kind in a Western language.
Throughout her distinguished career, Dr. Yu has focussed on traditional Chinese medicine and its integration with Western biomedicine. She has received numerous honors for her clinical research in reproductive endocrinology, obstetrics, and gynecology, and is a prolific writer, having authored over seventy scientific papers and more than a dozen books in various languages. Dr. Yu is also the principal editor of the obstetric and gynecologic section of Collection of Chinese Medical Secret Formulas.

Praise for Handbook of Obstetrics & Gynecology in Chinese Medicine
“We are still a long way from … a unified model that would encompass the insights and terminologies of both Western and Chinese medical systems. But it is important to start on this path.”
