Crohn's disease is a chronic illness that afflicts millions of patients worldwide.
Despite its increasing recognition as a medical specialty within gastroenterology, there has been little attention devoted to Crohn's from a surgical perspective.
This volume fills that void and acts as the first catalogue to address the surgical management of Crohn's disease.
The goal of this work was to provide surgeons with the latest medical and surgical information to manage patients with Crohn's disease effectively.
In this book, contributions from both gastroenterologists describe the history, diagnosis, nutrition, medical management, and surveillance of Crohn's disease.
Chapters from general and colorectal surgeons detail common clinical techniques, minimally invasive surgical approach and management of perianal disease.
In addition, surgical complications specific to Crohn's disease are also reviewed.
This book provides all of the essential information needed in the surgical management of Crohn's disease in one simple volume.
It aims to be a useful resource for practicing surgeons and surgical residents as well as gastroenterologists.
The authors wish readers to understand the complex decision making and sophisticated surgical techniques that these patients often demand.
