Gastroenterologists require detailed knowledge regarding the anatomy of the GI system in order to understand the disturbances caused by diseases they diagnose and treat.

To make that information easily accessible, Gastrointestinal Anatomy and Physiology: The Essentials brings together the world’s leading experts who present a comprehensive overview of the anatomic and physiologic features of the gastrointestinal tract.

Full color and with excellent anatomical and clinical figures throughout, it provides succinct, authoritative, and didactic anatomic and physiologic information on all the key areas, including:

• GI motility

• hepaticstructure

• GI hormones

• gastric secretion

• absorption of nutrients

GI trainees will value the clear-cut, straightforward guidance, as well as the self-assessment questions written to the level they will encounter during Board exams, and gastroenterologists will find it useful as a handy refresher on the key topics ahead of re-certification exams.
