Overview

A new edition from one of the most respected and authoritative Crohn's and colitis experts.

Living with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis can be a tremendous challenge, so actually understanding inflammatory bowel disease is the key to developing effective management strategies.

The first edition of Dr. Steinhart's book has over 50,000 copies in print and has been recognized by practitioners and patients alike for its invaluable information on the subject. This new edition will feature twenty per cent new content based on the most current evidence from the most reputable sources and it follows new standards of practice for diagnosis and treatment. This will include information on the possible underlying causes, clinical features, and effective treatments of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Additional case studies will be featured which help to demonstrate successful treatment at work and the interior pages have been redesigned to be even more accessible. Handy charts will summarize key information and "Did You Know" features will introduce new research findings in a friendly, easy-to-understand approach. The popular frequently asked questions section remains as does the friendly but firm approach that proved to be successful in the first edition.

While there is no ultimate cure for either condition, Dr. Steinhart's expert guidance will take patients a long way toward improving their health and quality of life, and providing reassurance to their loved ones.

Editorial Reviews

Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada - Ford Bursey
[Review of previous edition:] Why another book on IBD you might ask? Well this book has raised the bar in the field of medical information for the general public. The approach taken by Dr. Hillary Steinhart in this book Crohn's and Colitis, results in a clear discussion of an illness that at times seems confusing and that may even be overwhelming for patients and their families. He has set the standard to which other authors should strive; not only in the area of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but also in all books that intend to educate the public about medical conditions.... This is an excellent overview of IBD that is written in a style that is easy to understand, yet contains enough detail that it could function as an introduction to the subject for medical students and many other health care professionals.... Would I recommend this [book] to my patients? I would do so absolutely and without reservation.
National Association of Crohn's and Colitis - Georgina Shaman

This informative and optimistic book is a must have for anyone suffering or caring for a person with Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis.
