Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I particularly enjoyed the chapter on managing inflammatory bowel disease in the context of hepatitis B and C, and the pithy and informed reviews on probiotics, heparin and the role of stress, which will be of value to all doctors (and surgeons) managing these desease...This volume will provide a useful synopsis and introduction to the literature for many of the problems that are encountered on a daily basis whether in the clinic or on the ward."
Gut

"This book is a successful compendium of clinical wisdom and common sense approaches...the editors have achieved admirably their goal of a “user-friendly” IBD resource for the busy clinician dealing with the demands of an IBD patient."
Gastroenterology

"It is a fantastic book...to have in a busy clinic or on the ward which will also provide references for further reading around the subject at a more leisurely ace away from the busy workplace."
TiGs

"This concise and very readable text is great for all involved in looking after IBD patients from GPs and practise nurses, to nurse practitioners and SpRs. It highlights many current hot topics and provides the evidence for the conclusions drawn. Each chapter is easily read between patients and references the places to go for a more extensive review of the topics in question. A great summary of subjects in the field, it doesn't pretend to be a comprehensive text."
Doctor on Amazon.co.uk

"Everyone...will doubtless learn about several important points [...] and this is probably an ideal invitation to further deepen his knowledge. A very pleasant, modern book which will be appreciated by established and trainee gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons, radiologists, dieticians and in general by all doctors involved in the care of IBD patients."
Digestive and Liver Disease

"It is well written, with a useful ‘Learning Points’ section at the beginning of each chapter. The topics have been chosen to give broad coverage across the spectrum of IBD, incorporating problems such as nutrition, pathology interpretation and service provision. Many of these will be helpful to juniors encountering specific difficulties for the first time and will perhaps persuade old hands to review the way they practice. Some will amuse as well as educate, such as the chapter on the use of worms in IBD.

This is a book to dip in and out of. Pick it up and see what interests you that day. There will be sections that you haven’t thought about in ages. Spending ten minutes to read a chapter on the evidence for management of DALMs may affect what you do in the endoscopy room that afternoon."
