Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the definitive book in colorectal surgery and the diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus in general. It is an exhaustive reference that spans the history of the subject right up to the most current and contemporary treatments and research."

"As is well known, everything is covered in this book. The now classic historical vignettes are a terrific addition and a fantastic distraction as one pours thorough content-laden pages. The index is exhaustive, as it must be to handle the breadth of information."

"This is a fantastic edition of a legendary book. The addition of guest editors is seamless. This is a necessary and essential part of the library of all surgeons."
