About this book

This book is a comprehensive guide to rectal cancer care that will provide general and colorectal surgeons details regarding the latest developments in the field. The book aims to cover the dynamic shifts in rectal cancer care that have taken place over recent years. Management approaches, such as watch-and-wait and transanal approaches, are evaluated and assessed by experienced physicians to give readers a full understanding of the available treatment options. Chapter summaries are included to give a clinical overview of each approach and to assist the understanding of each topic covered, and make the book applicable to both general surgeons and specialist practice nurses, as well as rectal cancer specialists.

Reviews

“This is a nice book for practitioners treating patients with rectal cancer. The initial information provides a solid foundation upon which the book builds as it progresses. The chapters are very focused, complete, and have nice illustrations. Those looking for a one-stop resource on this subject will find this is to be an excellent option.” (Peter Nau, Doody's Book Reviews, July 05, 2019)
