1 Review
This totally revised and enlarged new edition offers concise and well-structured chapters each focussing on the clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of a condition commonly encountered by the coloproctologist and gastroenterological surgeon, who are faced with an increasing number of precise and specific treatment modalities. The comprehensive, yet easy-to-read, information in this practical guide on both common and rare anorectal and colonic diseases is particularly important for both the practitioner, who needs to know all the possible modalities of conservative and surgical treatment, and the surgeon, who needs to adapt his surgical procedure to the clinical and anatomical findings. Precise guidelines are given and surgical techniques illustrated. Each chapter is completed with up-to-date references and a self-assessment quiz.

As a lay person with questions about my nether regions I found this book to be quite readable and informative.
As a technical person I get the sense it's written by competent medical professionals for other medical professionals.
