This is the first comprehensive book exclusively dedicated to anorectal  physiology and the importance of diagnostic tools in guiding the  evaluation and treatment of anorectal dysfunction. Functional disorders,  and specifically fecal incontinence and evacuatory disorders, are  prevalent in the general population, affecting up to 20% of individuals.  As many of these conditions have extremely complex mechanisms, a  thorough understanding of anorectal physiology is a crucial element in  the surgeon’s “arsenal" to ensure accurate evaluation and to inform  treatment.

At this time, there is no other title that  specifically addresses all aspects of anorectal physiology, as well as  anorectal and pelvic floor disorders, including fecal incontinence and  defecation disorders. Specifically, the book provides detailed  descriptions of diagnostic methods and treatment algorithms for a range  of anorectal conditions, including modern treatment modalities such as  sacral neuromodulation.

A unique and comprehensive reference  covering all aspects of the evaluation and treatment of anorectal  disorders, Anorectal Physiology – A Clinical and Surgical Perspective  will be of significant interest to proctologists and coloproctologists,  gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons, gynecologists and all other  professionals interested in anorectal physiology.
