Whereas other textbooks mix a clinical approach with large amounts of the basic science of gastroenterology, this book concentrates on providing practicing gastroenterologists with 100% clinically focused, evidence-based chapters on how to correctly diagnosis and treat all disorders of the digestive tract.
The book is divided into 4 clear parts: Symptoms, Syndromes and Scenarios; Diseases of the Gut and Liver; Primer of Diagnostic Methods; and Primer of Treatments. An accompanying website contains more than 85 high-definition surgical videos of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, 300 MCQs written to mirror the American College of Gastroenterology postgraduate course exams, more than 35 management protocol charts for different diseases, and 850+ illustrations for use in scientific presentations.
