eBook version

by Mr Matthew Mason and Mr Michael G Thomas

The aim of this booklet is to illustrate common colorectal surgical procedures using schematic illustrations loosely based on abdominal anatomy.

It is hoped that the illustrative text will facilitate patient and clinician communication to prompt informed discussion about common colorectal procedures. The diagrams have been simplified as much as possible with an attempt to retain the essence of the surgery involved.
