Aimed at consultant colorectal surgeons and those in training who wish to expand their practice into pelvic floor pathology- a complex and developing area of surgery- Pelvic Floor Disorders for the Colorectal Surgeon provides a modern, thought-provoking approach to pelvic floor disorderswritten by emerging young leaders in the field. These conditions are of high importance and interest to colorectal surgeons, but also gynaecologists, gastroenterologists and general gastrointestinal surgeons. The layout of the text book is in 3 sections. The first provides an organizational and diagnostic approach to pelvic floor problems that is conceptual in scope, the second details the patho-anatomical and physiological entities that this diagnostic approach will bring to light and describes theirmanagement, while the third is more technical, covering key new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and their results. The textbook aims to encourage the reader to critically analyze some of their own cherished views, and those more widely established, on colorectal pelvic floor practice.
