  • Corman ML, editor. Corman's Colon and Rectal Surgery. 6th ed. Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012.

    Three associate editors of international repute — Dr. Roberto Bergamaschi, Dr. R. John Nicholls, and Dr. Victor W. Fazio — have participated in the creation of this updated volume, but the hand of Dr. Marvin L. Corman can be recognized throughout. This gold standard reference is often referred to as the "bible" of the specialty.

    From Doody's Reviews: "This is the definitive book in colorectal surgery and the diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus in general. It is an exhaustive reference that spans the history of the subject right up to the most current and contemporary treatments and research. As is well known, everything is covered in this book.… This is a fantastic edition of a legendary book."

    This book provides a broad overview on training in minimal access surgery, with expert opinions from leaders in the field clarifying the definitions and terminology related to competence and accreditation. It also provides expert advice on how to set up a training unit, and explores the role and impact of all types of simulations on training including virtual reality simulation. ​

    There is well-established and robust evidence to support the benefits of laparoscopic surgery in terms of better pain control, fewer complications, and shorter length of stay with an earlier return to work. Hence, there is now widespread adoption of laparoscopic techniques in many surgical specialties including colorectal and morbid obesity surgery around the world.
