?This book describes the causes and clinical management of functional gastrointestinal disorders in a readily understandable way, with the aid of many clear illustrations. The concrete and practical advice provided will be most helpful in the clinical practice of both the general practitioner and the medical specialist. Functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and irritable bowel syndrome, are very common and chronic conditions. Despite the recent publication of many scientific papers on their diagnosis and treatment, much remains unclear, and management is still considered challenging. This practice-oriented book will be an ideal source of reliable up-to-date guidance for all who care for these patients.

Albert J (Arjan) Bredenoord, MD studied Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium. He subsequently worked on several clinical research projects on GI motility at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA and at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands which resulted in a PhD thesis on gastroesophageal reflux disease in 2006. His clinical training was performed in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands and at the Royal London Hospital in London, UK. He currently works as a consultant Gastroenterologist at the Amsterdam Medical Center where he is dedicated to patients care, scientific research and education. His main focus is on achalasia, reflux disease and eosinophilic esophagitis. He is one of the pioneers of high-resolution manometry and impedance monitoring of the esophagus. The esophageal clinic in the AMC Amsterdam hosts the largest population of benign esophageal diseases in the Netherlands. Dr Bredenoord is an author of over 150 papers, books and book chapters on esophageal diseases and organizes regular courses in Europe, North America and Asia.
