Over 50 surgeons from the Mayo Clinic have collaborated to present the definitive new single-volume work on gastrointestinal surgery. Focusing on practical surgical how-to rather than basic science, it delivers all of the step-by-step, richly illustrated guidance surgeons need to successfully reproduce the many operative procedures performed by the Mayo Clinic staff.

  • Explores the diagnosis, indications for surgery, choice of operation, operative techniques, and surgical outcomes for every major gastrointestinal condition-from the esophagus to the anal canal.
  • Features more than 845 intraoperative photographs, line drawings, diagnostic images, pathology slides, tables, and graphs that make every technique easy to follow.
  • Covers all of the latest minimal access techniques-including Nissen fundoplication, Heller myotomy, splenectomy, and colectomy-as well as the newest procedures for hepatic resection, liver and pancreatic transplantation, proctolectomy, and more.
  • Outlines today's best approaches for managing challenging conditions such as morbid obesity, pelvic trauma, GERD, esophageal hiatal hernia, Crohn's disease, and colon cancer.
  • Covers the most recent combined surgical, chemotherapeutic, and radiotherapeutic approaches to cancer.

·Provides evidence from the literature to support each therapeutic recommendation.
