PressestimmenFrom the reviews of the first edition:
"An outstanding review of an increasingly common clinical problem, namely, the management of field antireflux therapy. The selection of chapter authors is outstanding, the combinations of topics presented are well thought out and the layout and presentation are excellent. Clinicians who see patients on any form of GERD therapy will find the book insightful, scholarly and useful."
J.H. Peters, MD, FACS, Diseases of the Esophagus
"This is a multi-authored textbook edited by a surgeon and a gastroenterologist. ... The content and references are up-to-date. The quality of the drawings, black and white and colour illustrations is generally excellent throughout the book. ... This is a useful and comprehensive textbook for surgeons who want to manage such complex patients and understand the importance of a truly multidisciplinary approach." (L. Bonavina, Digestive and Liver Disease, Issue 38, 2006)
