Do you regularly manage patients with GERD?

 

Need a practical tool to guide you through best patient care and management?

Highly practical, expertly-written, and packed with useful text tools like case histories, pitfall boxes and management algorithms, this convenient and user-friendly  manual provides you with complete clinical guidance to gastroesophageal reflux disease  (GERD), one of the most common conditions that gastroenterologists face every day.

The book is divided into three parts:

  • An overview of GERD, including pathophysiology, diagnosis, general management strategies and side effects from medical and surgical GERD therapies
  • Management of specific clinical presentations such as  Refractory GERD, Laryngopharyngeal Reflux, Noncardiac Chest Pain, and GERD-Related Dysphagia
  • Barrett’s Esophagus and GERD, including diagnosis, surveillance and treatment options
With a strong focus on the clinical management of GERD and with contributions from the world’s leading authorities on the topic, Practical Manual of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is the perfect tool for the modern day gastroenterologist - both at specialist level and in training – managing this extremely prevalent condition.
