DESCRIPTION

Colorectal surgery is a very ancient art that has, over the last few decades, found a sound basis in science. Amongst its famous ancient practitioners was Hippocrates himself. Colorectal-surgical departments have been springing up worldwide and many of the surgical colleges and academies are beginning to see the importance of this branch of medicine. After rising from humble beginnings, the specialty of colorectal surgery is now a much-sought-after career amongst young doctors all over the world.Topics in Colorectal Surgery is an invaluable book from one of the leading colorectal centres in the world. It represents some of the most important lectures given over the last eight years at the Annual Singapore General Hospital Colorectal Week. This event has become an internationally acclaimed gathering and the book contains updated lecture notes from the last seven conferences. These lecture notes, together with the book chapters, contain material not often found in other books and will be a valuable source of reference for clinicians dealing with the problems discussed in the text.
