"An essential reading for whoever treats patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease, from gastroenterologists to surgeons."
--Marco G. Patti, MD, Professor of Surgery, University of California, San Francisco
"All of us who are involved in the care of patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma owe a debt of gratitude to Drs. DeMeester and Chandrasoma for producing the exceptional material contained within this text."
--Donald O. Castell, MD, Professor of Medicine, Director, Esophageal Disorders Program, Medical University of South Carolina
"This timely and authoritative book was written by two masters in the field whose experience spans two decades and includes supervision of studies involving more than 10,000 patients. The book is well written and demonstrates the advantages of having a limited number of authors and a narrow focus - namely, consistency of style and a cohesive philosophy...We therefore feel that this book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in esophageal disease, and particularly in GERD and esophageal adenocarcinoma."
-- The New England Journal of Medicine
"This book is extremely well written, carefully and thoughtfully prepared, and offers the open-minded reader a view of GERD that they would not read in any standard textbook or review article on the subject. The rich descriptions of the histopathology, views on carditis, cardiac intestinal metaplasia; and the microscopic definition of the gastroesophageal junction are valuable to all that study this disease." - Philp O. Katz, Thomas Jefferson University and Albert Einstein Medical Center, Philadelphia, PA, Gastroenterology, 2007
"This book describes a novel, fascinating, straight-forward approach towards understanding and management of gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD), a disease that is `all about us'. The book is highly recommended to those who want to become better in the management of their patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease." - Johannes Lenglinger and Martin Riegler, European Surgery, 2007.
"We therefore feel that this book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in esophageal disease, and particularly in GERD and esophageal adenocarcinoma" - Subhas Banerjee and Jacques Van Dam, Stanford University School of Medicine, 2007
