Are you looking for concise, practical answers to questions that are often left unanswered by traditional GERD references? Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for complicated cases or complications? Curbside Consultation in GERD: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between colleagues.

Dr. Philip Katz has designed this unique reference, which offers expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with GERD. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to GERD with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and to illustrate the treatment of GERD patients.

Curbside Consultation in GERD: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert advice that even high-volume clinicians will appreciate. Gastroenterologists, fellows and residents in training, surgical attendings, and surgical residents will benefit from the user-friendly and casual format and the expert advice contained within.

Some of the questions that are answered:

• Can medical therapy alter the natural history of Barrett’s esophagus?
• Can antireflux surgery alter the natural history of Barrett’s esophagus?
• How does pregnancy affect GERD? Is GERD in pregnancy a risk for long-term reflux?
• What is the association of obesity and GERD?
• What are the so-called extraesophageal manifestations of GERD?
• Is there a gender difference in reflux disease? Does this affect treatment?
