About this title

Synopsis:

Developed in conjunction with the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, this comprehensive textbook provides readers with the full scope of surgical practice for patients with diseases of the colon and rectum. Expert surgeons, all active both as educators and with busy clinical practices, have written concise and practical chapters on the most commonly done procedures while providing much-needed insight on less frequently presentations, as well.

The ASCRS Textbook is designed to meet the needs not only of colorectal specialists, but also the general surgeon in practice whose caseload includes patients with disorders and diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. Residents and fellows will also find a wealth of hands-on guidance and practical tips and tricks. The ASCRS Practice Parameters are incorporated in the book along with an appendix providing the most up-to-the minute access to best practice guidelines. Patient care and safety are addressed in each chapter.

"[The ASCRS Textbook of Colon and Rectal Surgery] is a long awaited textbook for those in the field and it does not disappoint. It is brief and to the point, but does not lack the necessary detail expected from a society-produced publication. [It has an] easy-to-read quality that enhances comprehension for the trainee. It is by no means just a student textbook. The inclusion of "hot" current topics, like the anal fistula plug, makes it fresh and useful for experienced surgeons. This is an excellent addition to the colorectal library." (Doody's Review)

Review:

From the reviews:

"The goals of this textbook ... were to provide state-of-the-art information on colon and rectal surgery for residents in training and for fully trained surgeons seeking recertification. Dr. Fleshman and his fellow editors should be congratulated for achieving these goals ... . In summary, this book represents a succinct yet comprehensive and up-to-date review of colon and rectal surgery. It is already proving popular with our own trainees, and I suspect it will become required reading on both sides of the Atlantic." (John Hartley, Diseases of the Colon and Rectum, Vol. 51, 2008)

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The book targets the needs of trainees in colon and rectal surgery and practitioners of the specialty. It also would serve as a useful resource for gastroenterologists and an advanced source for medical students. The authorship is predominantly U.S. practitioners in colon and rectal surgery with a few international exceptions. ... This is an excellent update of the authoritative reference standard for this specialty. ... it achieves its goals and should be within easy reach of all practitioners and trainees in the field.” (John W. Cromwell, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2011)
