Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the last few years, we have seen tremendous improvements in treatment methods for chronic diseases like cancer, obesity and many more. Within these developments, it is increasingly important to work side-by-side with fellow medical specialists. In particular, gastroenterologists and surgeons have been working together in both the surgical and endoscopic fields. Good examples include endoscopic treatments for obesity performed by gastroenterologists, as well as the early endoscopic resection of cancers. For these developments, both specialties need to get out of their comfort zones.
Therefore, this Special Issue is focused on the new treatment insights in which knowledge of both gastroenterologists and surgeons are combined. This Special Issue is therefore titled ‘Combining Gastroenterology and Surgery: New Treatment Insights’.
We welcome all manuscripts that cover new treatment insights in which surgical and gastroenterological knowledge is combined. We invite you to submit research about the challenges, trends and perspectives in new treatments in gastroenterology and surgery.
