The Clinician’s Guide to Gastrointestinal Oncology PDF
6.03 MB PDF
The area of gastrointestinal oncology is an active one. Both clinical research and basic research have come together and changed the diagnostic and treatment protocols for a number of deadly malignancies. A multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment appears to be the best paradigm; it allows for each individual medical specialty to apply their knowledge and expertise in an expeditious and effective manner.
Some of the cancers with which we deal are unfortunately all too often ultimately fatal. Our roles are changing; the boundaries between the medical subspecialties are blurring, with progressive leadership we are better able to make the patients feel that their “team” is truly in sync and providing cutting edge therapy. To this end, I have gathered a nationally and internationally recognized group of clinical researchers and clinicians to provide a balanced and multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of the most common of the gastrointestinal malignancies.
It is intended that this book will serve as a resource for trainees and clinicians in the medical and surgical fields. Those that infrequently diagnose or take care of patients with these neoplasms should be able to find enough easily accessible information to be able to converse with their patients and their families, and those who are routinely involved in the care of these patients will gain a better understanding of the capabilities of the other specialties and gain insight into the thought processes behind the often difficult treatment decisions that must be made.
