The book is divided into seven major sections, with each section beginning with a brief case presentation highlighting the specific disorder to be reviewed.

The book is organized so that each chapter can stand on its own and be used as a quick reference source in the clinic. Alternatively, it can be read cover to cover as an authoritative textbook on gastrointestinal functional and motility disorders.
