Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Essentially, this is a collection of review articles on various topics related to the diagnosis, assessment, staging, and management of rectal cancer. … It is successful as an up-to-date look at all issues pertaining to early stage and treatable rectal cancer. I recommend this for practicing rectal cancer surgeons as both a review of their knowledge and a confirmation of the expert opinions of those who attended what must have been an excellent conference.” (John C. Byrn, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
