A Practical Approach to Managing IBS

Understanding and Applying the Evidence for Optimal Care

William Chey, MD, and Amy Foxx-Orenstein, DO, offer their expert insights into the diagnosis and management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). These experts discuss several cases that illustrate issues you might encounter when caring for patients with IBS, and will help you navigate the diagnosis and treatment of this common complaint, including making the IBS diagnosis without unnecessary diagnostic testing, recognizing signs that suggest an organic cause for symptoms, and selecting treatments that will address patients' most troubling symptoms.
