For over 25 years, Yamada’s Textbook of Gastroenterology has been the most comprehensive gastroenterology reference book, combining an encyclopedic basic science approach to GI and liver disease with the latest clinical thinking, especially in diagnostic and therapeutic developments. It is universally respected across the globe.
The original outstanding editorial team was led by Tadataka Yamada, MD, one of the world’s leading figures in GI research. This seventh edition of the Textbook features a new set of Editors-in-Chief and a new team of Associate Editors. This new editorial team has made substantial changes and updates to the Textbook, with a greater focus on the human microbiome, obesity, bariatric endoscopy, and aging, along with the consolidation of many older chapters.
Led by Professor Michael Camilleri and Professor Timothy C. Wang, a stellar group of associate editors has once again combined with authors in their respective fields to communicate their vast fund of knowledge and experience to make the 7th edition of this iconic textbook the most comprehensive ever published.
"In short, this is an invaluable book, and a must for every gastroenterologist's practice. The content is exceptional, with detailed information on nearly all subspecialties in gastroenterology and quality images, including endoscopic pictures, for reference."
-- Nicole Pisapia, DO (Parkview Medical Center)Doody's Review - previous edition
"Outstanding as an inclusive gastroenterology textbook. ... I have no trouble in strongly recommending this text for every medical library and for every gastroenterology training program."
-- Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology - previous edition
This is an excellent book for students, residents, fellows, and practicing clinicians. Dr. Yamada is one of the world's leading clinical researchers and his contribution to GI literature and educational is well established.
