We are very pleased to announce the publication this month of the sixth edition of <a href="…; target="_blank"><em>Corman's Colon and Rectal Surgery</em></a>, edited by <a href="/surgery/people/faculty/dr-marvin-l-corman" target="_blank">Marvin L. Corman, MD</a>, professor of surgery and member of our <a href="/surgery/divisions/colorectal-surgery" target="_blank">Colon and Rectal Surgery Division</a>.

The publisher is Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.


<p>Established for over 25 years as "the gold standard in its discipline" (<a href="; target="_blank"><I>JAMA</I></a>), Dr. Corman's new edition, further revised and expanded, covers all diseases and conditions managed by colorectal surgeons as well as general surgeons.</p>

<p>Three co-editors of international repute, including our chief of colorectal surgery, <a href="/surgery/people/faculty/dr-roberto-bergamaschi" target="_blank">Roberto Bergamaschi, MD, PhD</a>, have participated in the creation of the present updated edition.</p>

<p>The hand of Dr. Corman can be recognized throughout this edition, which, for the first time, carries his name in its formal title. The book has grown to 1,584 pages.</p>

New to this edition are a full-color interior design with detailed art depicting the steps of procedures; comprehensive coverage of the latest laparoscopic diagnostic and surgical management techniques in all areas of the specialty; and a companion website that includes the fully searchable text.</p>

<p>At the Annual Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons, held in Chicago during the first week of October, a special program took place to celebrate the publication of the book, and to honor Dr. Corman for this achievement and contribution to the practice of surgery.
