About this item
Yamada’s Textbook of Gastroenterology has for 20 years been the most comprehensive gastroenterology reference book, combining an encyclopaedic 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. As in previous editions, the new textbook reflects the collective efforts of the editors and a hugely impressive team of contributors, who are each experts in their specific areas.
Now with another world leader in gastroenterology as Editor-in-Chief, Daniel K. Podolsky MD, President and Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, together with a stellar group of associate editors, the 6th edition of this iconic textbook has been expanded and enhanced in many ways with new content and technology.
