Surgical treatment of hemorrhoids is one of the most important coloproctological procedures.

The topics covered include essential elements of diagnosis, surgical technique and after-care for the main operations used in hemorrhoid surgery. Providing authoritative in-depth presentations of all perspectives and latest techniques available, the individual procedures are each described by an internationally recognized expert, and the full range of treatment options is covered. The chapters have been revised, with some additions and updates, including stapled hemorrhoidectomy and office management, and also hemorrhoidectomy with several concomitant comorbidities.
