Abstract

The work of this section covers the diseases of the alimentary tract except the first part, which is covered by an older one than ours, viz., the Section on Stomatology. There is left to us to handle the pathologic conditions from the esophagus to the anus. As most men practice gastro-enterology, it is a medical specialty, and their surgical work is referred to general surgeons, which is probably as it should be. But as the problems of the first portion of the tract are essentially surgical, so also are those of the last part. Like stomatology, proctology has many problems that have little to do with gastro-enterology, and I wish to maintain the thesis that proctology is far more than the tag end of gastro-enterology. As a proctologist I have little quarrel with others of that name, except so far as some may belittle what is my concept of true
