Main description:

Aimed at consultant colorectal surgeons and those in training who wish to expand their practice into pelvic floor pathology- a complex and developing area of surgery- Pelvic Floor Disorders for the Colorectal Surgeon provides a modern, thought-provoking approach to pelvic floor disorders written by emerging young leaders in the field. These conditions are of high importance and interest to colorectal surgeons, but also gynaecologists, gastroenterologists and general
gastrointestinal surgeons.

The layout of the text book is in 3 sections. The first provides an organizational and diagnostic approach to pelvic floor problems that is conceptual in scope, the second details the patho-anatomical and physiological entities that this diagnostic approach will bring to light and describes their management, while the third is more technical, covering key new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and their results. The textbook aims to encourage the reader to critically analyze some of their
own cherished views, and those more widely established, on colorectal pelvic floor practice.

Average Rating 

... [the book] gives an excellent overview of the speciality - everything from how to build a unit and the assessments that are appropriate for surgical treatment ... It gives good practical advice and treatment algorithms in a field where a lot is still unclear. ... the editors and authors of this book should be commended for a fresh clarity of approach in a complex area which appears both rational and understandable. It will no doubt be of great benefit to a variety of specialists engaged in this specialty. The chapters are clearly written with comprehensive, up to date references and conclude with helpful key points and editors summaries.... this book will be invaluable not only to colorectal surgeons and their trainees but also to all who have an interest in pelvic floor disorders including gastroenterologists, gynaecologists, radiologis ts, specialist nurses and indeed to medical students. I would unreservedly recommend this book to established Consultants, trainees and allied professionals in the field, including Urogynaecologists.
