  1. This article discusses recent significant advancements in minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery; personalized therapy based on genomics and proteomics; and new pharmacologic treatments of various gastrointestinal (GI) diseases.
  2. Includes brand new information on laparoscopy for the treatment of rectal cancer, sacral nerve stimulation for the treatment of incontinence and constipation, the management of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, advances in immunosuppression for transplant patients, and new treatments for inflammatory bowel disease.


“This is, without a doubt, my go-to gastrointestinal surgery ebook. As a senior resident, I found it to be helpful, and I believe that, as the field of surgery evolves, it will continue to be useful in the years to come as well. Because the authors had the foresight to include new surgical technologies, such as the POEM or the Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation Device (Linx), this demonstrates their dedication to staying up to date in the field, rather than merely concentrating on the tried and true surgical options. This is a comprehensive ebook that, while it may be missing some of the more detailed information found in others on the molecular level, is an excellent resource for practicing surgeons or senior residents who are interested in becoming experts in the field of GI surgery. — Peter Nau; MD; MS; FACS (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics) — Score of 94 from Doody’s, which equals 4 stars!
