Dr. Turek’s Latest Book

The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations: Reproductive System, 2nd Edition

The Netter Green Books are a veritable medical bible that has now been revised for the first time in 55 years. Read Dr. Turek’s blog or watch the video about his latest book.

Yet despite the international acclaim and the chance to mentor the next generation of physicians, Dr. Turek realized that what he most enjoyed was being a physician and caring for patients with reproductive health problems. As Dr. Turek explains, “I’ve always believed in scientific research because it generates knowledge, but what matters most to me is how that translates into good, old-fashioned wisdom for patient care.” That simple but deeply felt insight gave birth to The Turek Clinic and his award-winning blogTurek On Men’s Health.
