The book discusses key concepts that will assist general surgeons and colorectal consultants in their management of patients with a broad spectrum of anorectal and colonic disorders. It will be particularly useful to trainees approaching the final intercollegiate examination who have expressed a specialist interest in colorectal surgery. With a problem-oriented slant, this book is essential reading for all those with an interest in coloproctology.
