Chronic pelvic pain affects millions of men and women. Their inability to fulfill roles of parent, spouse, or career brings them to seek medical help. Many will not respond to conventional medical or surgical treatment. Special skill in physical examination and history taking is necessary to uncover all sources of the patient's pain. New surgical and medical therapies are available which may offer hope for these long-suffering women and men.
