Reviews

From the reviews:

“This concise book explores the most technically difficult and debatable aspects of colon and rectal surgery. … It is targeted at residents in training and practicing surgeons, but, in my estimation, the most appropriate audience is practicing colon and rectal specialists. … This is an excellent reference, providing expert opinion and relevant and current references in addressing … most advanced issues in colorectal surgery. I will use this as a starting point in tackling the most difficult problems my patients present.” (John C. Byrn, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)

“Edited and written by a team of experts in their respective fields with 57 illustrations this is essentially an educational manual with an algorithm approach and valuable reading for trainees in coloproctology … . The editors set out to address some of the most difficult and controversial problems as well as new areas of development for practitioners of colorectal surgery. It will be invaluable as a reference source and guide for those who are seeking practical information about complex procedures.” (ICS News, Vol. 7 (1), January, 2011)
