Product description

Fully revised and updated for the new edition, the Oxford Handbook of Gastroenterology and Hepatology comprises a unique A-Z compendium of the specialty, and a dedicated section detailing 30 of the most common problems in GI medicine, which can be used as a quick reference. A new section on clinical practice and diagnostics provides valuable new guidance on diagnostic procedures and reduces the time needed to search for each individual procedure and its associated complications. Further enhanced sections include emergencies, and commonly used drugs used in gastroenterology and hepatology, with emphasis on practice tips and common complications. Reflecting current approaches in training and curricula, the handbook has been arranged to reflect a clinical problems-based approach. Navigability has been enhanced, with a comprehensive index as well as an anatomical index being added to the existing A-Z format to ensure the right information will always be at your fingertips. The result of this new approach is a handbook which is practical, easy-to-use, and informative. It is an essential guide to the management of common conditions and is invaluable to all those involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disease.

Stuart Bloom was educated at Oxford and St Thomas' Hospital, London. He trained in general medicine and gastroenterology in London, Oxford and Liverpool and spent four years in full time research at the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Oxford. He was appointed Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist to UCL hospitals in July 1996. Within gastroenterology, he is particularly interested in the field of inflammatory bowel disease and research into its underlying mechanisms. George Webster is a Consultant in Gastroenterology and Pancreaticobiliary Medicine at UCLH, and an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Hepatobiliary Medicine within the Department of Medicine at UCL. His areas of clinical and research interest include hepatology, pancreaticobiliary medicine, and interventional endoscopy (particularly ERCP). To date he has published 20 peer reviewed papers, 6 review articles, and 7 book chapters. He has a longstanding interest in education, including the co-ordination of undergraduate hepatology/gastroenterology teaching at UCLH, regular lecturing for the MRCP exam, and consultant-directed teaching on a number of courses, including within UCL and The Royal College of Physicians. He is also actively involved in the hands-on training of registrars in ERCP and interventional endoscopy.

Review quote

This is a very useful addition to the Oxford Handbook series, and advances in the field and section improvements justify this second edition...4 stars! Doody's Notes Overall, for any member of the multidisciplinary team working in this area who need a concise, easy to use reference book this ticks all the boxes. ANTS Bulletin Review from previous edition This small but very pleasant book covers in a very individual and intelligent manner almost all daily gastrointestinal problems encountered in the clinic and on the wards...The authors are to be congratulated for having produced this must-have handbook which will be appreciated equally by junior doctors in training and by those immersed in busy hospital medical departments.
