This is the state-of the-art book on inflammatory boweldisease you have been waiting for

Written and edited by international experts in gastroenterologythis up-to-date volume provides a complete review of the basicscience behind inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as well asevidence-based clinical guidance on diagnosis, treatment andlong-term management of IBD.

In 50 chapters the authors cover the latest and most promisingtreatment modalities and the science behind them. There arechapters which cover the advances in the medical and surgicaltreatment of conditions such as Crohn's disease and ulcerativecolitis, as well as chapters focusing on nutrition, imaging andcomplementary medicine.

This is an invaluable information resource for all those in themedical team treating patients with IBD. Whether you are agastroenterologist, gastrointestinal surgeon or GI nurse specialistthis book deserves a place in your library.
