Colorectal Surgery: Living Pathology in the Operating Room is two books in one. First, it is an atlas in the classic definition: each chapter is a two-page spread discussing one case. Functionally, each chapter is a case study with both the surgical and pathological perspectives beautifully rendered and fully explained.
Visually, every chapter presents the reader with operative and/or diagnostic photos, and anatomic line drawings by the author. The text, more extensive than in many atlases, provides a concise yet complete operative record: patient history/work up, anatomic anomalies, the procedure itself, pathologic findings, and follow up.
Key teaching points emphasize the most important and unique aspects of every case. Residents, fellows, and even seasoned practitioners will gain valuable diagnostic and therapeutic insights from this material. The case study presentation provides an excellent review tool for the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery exam.

From the Foreword
"The experienced surgeon will appreciate this book by recognizing the details and exquisitely rendered images that call to mind similar cases encountered. For the surgeon or trainee relatively new to the practice of colorectal surgery, the graphic presentation of the surgical pathology, with the accompanying succinct and informative text, will make the acquisition of this book a worthwhile one."
Victor Fazio, M.D. and Stanley Goldberg, M.D.
As Lord Moynihan frequently mentioned in his legendary lectures, surgeons have the unique opportunity to study pathology in vivo, or in a living state. The pathology is seen in relation to normal anatomy, leading to important surgical judgments that ensure only diseased tissue will be removed, and with minimal damage or sacrifice to normal structures. In addition to influencing surgical design making, observation of living pathology offers a glimpse into the disease process and provides a valuable assessment of the morphological features of the specimen before it is preserved with formalin.
Colorectal Surgery: Living Pathology in the Operating Room is a unique collection of beautifully illustrated cases focusing on the pathology as much as the operative technique used to remove the diseased tissue. One hundred case reports describe unusual findings, or unusual manifestations of more common conditions, encountered by the author during his 40-plus years in practice as a colorectal surgeon. All of the drawings in the book were sketched immediately after the procedures in order to capture the details and significance of the specimen. As finished drawings, Dr. Killingback’s beautiful images increase the reader’s conceptual knowledge of surgical pathology and how it presents. Accompanying text, photos, and diagnostic studies provide the details of patient management and shed further light on the intrinsic art and science of interpreting living pathology, making this a must-have resource for colorectal surgeons and residents as well as general surgeons and surgical pathologists.About the Author:
Dr. Mark Killingback has practiced colorectal surgery for 37 years and recently retired with the goal of focusing his efforts on the completion of this book. An honorary member of the American College of Surgeons and surgical societies throughout Europe, Dr. Killingback is renown for his many contributions to the field of colorectal surgery. In addition, Dr. Killingback is credited for establishing the first specialized colorectal unit in Australia. But perhaps the talent least known to date is his ability to beautifully render his keen observations in the operating room. Reviewers unanimously agreed that the art is not only exceedingly beautiful but is as true as if they were observing the surgical specimen themselves.
