Textbook of Gastroenterology encyclopaedic discussion of the basic science underlying gastrointestinal and liver diseases as well as the many diagnostic and therapeutic modalities available to the patients who suffer from them was—and still is—beyond compare.

Textbook of Gastroenterology provides the latest information on current and projected uses of major technologies in the field and a new section on diseases of the liver.
