"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."

Established for over 25 years and now in its 6th Edition, Corman’s Colon and Rectal Surgery has been thoroughly updated and abundantly illustrated to provide comprehensive coverage of all diseases and conditions affecting the colon, rectum, and anus. Step-by-step instructions on current operative procedures used to treat these disorders are underscored by the authoritative knowledge and expertise of leaders in the field. Three co-editors of international repute have participated in the creation of this updated volume, but the hand of Dr. Corman can be recognized throughout. The biographic sketches have been considerably expanded. This gold standard reference, often referred to as the ‘Bible’ of the specialty, includes thorough reviews of anatomy, physiology, and related medical topics, as well as an extensive section on diagnostic studies, with a focus on the latest imaging modalities. New to this edition are a full-colour interior design that includes unique, detailed art depicting the steps in today’s operative procedures and comprehensive coverage of the latest laparoscopic diagnostic and surgical management techniques in all areas of the specialty. “This is an in-depth and comprehensive textbook. There are many descriptions of historical operations and interesting short descriptions of famous surgeons and their contributions to medicine. The references are up-to-date and it is well-written and very informative. Overall it is comprehensive, authoritative and clearly written.”
