About this Reference Work

This is the first volume in the new Springer Major Reference Work series entitled Coloproctology. The book covers key topics in the anatomy and physiology of the colon, rectum and anus and the diagnosis of colorectal/anal diseases and disorders. It thus forms a sound basis for further volumes in the series that will focus on the treatment of more specific clinical conditions. The subjects addressed in the volume are crucial to effective patient management and the book highlights the fact that adequate diagnostic assessment of a given disease is significantly related to the pathophysiologic interpretation of the pathologic process. The purpose of the volume is to provide readers with up-to-date knowledge on colorectal and anal anatomy and physiology, particularly from a treatment perspective and to describe the methodology to be employed in choosing the best diagnostic work-up in coloproctology.

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide up‐to‐date information on the basics of colorectal surgery, covering a broad variety of topics. … The audience seems to be practitioners who may encounter proctology in the office setting and those already with a knowledge base in colorectal or general surgery … . this is a terrific reference. … I applaud the authors for their innovative and fresh approach to what is usually a dry subject.” (Shauna Lorenzo–Rivero, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
