The subject of gastroenterology has made far reaching advances in recent years in both theory and practice, but until now there has not been any one single resource, which discusses this progress. Prof. Balakrishnan has brought together in one volume all the latest knowledge and research from over 40 contributors, and has compiled this collective work into 'Practical Gastroenterology', thus providing the reader with information and advice on how to carry out day-to-day gastroenterological care and treatment. The book consists of 46 chapters, each one clearly and concisely written, supported with full colour photos to enhance the content, and deals with all common gastroenterological diseases. It will be an essential reference for general practitioners, trainee specialists in gastroenterology and also postgraduate medical students. Contents: 1.Managing Dysphagia 2.
