Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Willem J.S. de Villiers, MD, PhD, MHCM (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: With the ninth edition of this comprehensive and authoritative textbook on gastrointestinal and liver diseases, readers will have access to the online version and downloadable images. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: This is a superb example of a state-of-the-art, user-friendly textbook that covers disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, biliary tree, pancreas, and liver, as well as related topics of nutrition and peritoneal diseases.
Audience: It is intended for gastroenterologists, trainees in gastroenterology, primary care physicians, residents in medicine and surgery, and medical students. Those in the medical field with a more than passing interest in gastroenterology and hepatology should acquire this comprehensive and authoritative book. It is user friendly, beautifully illustrated, and contains a wealth of information. The editors and contributors are all eminent authorities in their respective fields.
Features: The two-volume textbook is divided into 11 sections that comprehensively address the biology of the GI tract and liver; nutrition in gastroenterology (with new chapters on bariatric surgery and its complications); symptoms, signs, and biopsychosocial issues; topics involving multiple organs; esophagus; stomach and duodenum; pancreas; biliary tract; liver; small and large intestine; and palliative, complementary, and alternative medicine. Many new authors have been added and the quality of the material is uniformly excellent. The figures in this edition are of exceptionally high quality and clarity. The online version is easy to access and navigate; several updates have already been added and complete references are available on the website.
Assessment: However difficult it may be in this day and age, this ninth edition is further improved and refined. The contents remain as academically sound as always, but the aesthetic appearance of has been much enhanced. It is a must for every gastroenterologist and hepatologist's bookshelf and the fast-moving pace of the field warrants a new edition. The online version is a significant advance and will enable this book to remain relevant in the UpToDate, easy access era. "

From the Publisher
Winner, First Prize in Gastroenterology, British Medical Association 2007 Book Awards

"Clearly THE book to go to for up-to-date and authoritative information on gastrointestinal tract and liver conditions." - JAMA, review of the 8th Edition

"A comprehensive reference for general gastroenterologists as well as more specialized practitioners in gastroenterology and hepatology." - Gut, review of the 8th Edition

''This is a classical textbook which has assisted many generations of gastroenterologists, internists, surgeons, family practitioners and students to gain knowledge in the extensive field of gastroenterology and hepatology... The quality of scientific information together with the practical approach... make it a valuable tool not only for specialists in gastroenterology, but also for physicians in connected specialities and for medical students as well.'' - Brîndusa Diaconu, December 2010

"Two volumes, 2300 pages, 127 chapters, more than 200 contributing authors, and a companion review and assessment book continue to make this textbook a MUST HAVE for every practicing gastroenterologist and hepatologist. The most exciting aspect of this textbook for the practicing clinician is the online availability of this 9th edition via expertconsult.com. This massive text is no longer merely a shelf shocker, but it will now be at the instant disposal of every practicing gastroenterologist." - Michael Sossenheimer, MD, PhD, Practical Gastroentology

"Written by >200 international authors, most of whom are recognized authorities on their topic, it provides an authoritative overview of the scientific background and clinical practice of gastrointestinal (GI) and liver disorders that will be of greatest value to practicing and academic gastroenterologists and GI fellows, but also GI surgeons, pathologists, and internists. The 9th edition of Sleisenger and Fordtran’s is a beautifully written and edited textbook that serves to maintain its stature as the definitive work within its field. Although the role of medical textbooks is being redefined in the age of electronic media, this current, authoritative, comprehensive reference should be on the shelf of every practicing gastroenterologist to address the numerous questions that arise on almost a daily basis that cannot necessarily be addressed by an electronic search." - Kenneth R. McQuaid, Department of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, Gastroentology
