Gastroesophageal cancers are the most common form of cancer incidents, and the second most common cause of death among cancer patients.

Written by the world's leading experts in surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, gastroenterology, pathology, radiology, nutrition, nurse specialists, palliative medicine, and research relating to neoplasia of the esophagus, this text will serve as the definitive resource and enable practitioners to provide the best possible patient care. Presented in an accessible and useful format, this text is a valuable reference to all practitioners participating in the care of this high-needs population.
