The seventh edition of the acclaimed textOperative Pediatric Surgerycontinues to provide a unique level of comprehensive detail on the full range of surgically treatable conditions presented in neonate and childhood as well asin utero. With an international list of authors, the chapters have been updated and complemented by the high-quality artwork that has established this operative guide as the standard reference for the pediatric surgeon.

This new edition retains the successful format of previous editions. It first highlights the initial principles and justification for the procedure. Next, the book outlines preoperative investigations and preparation. This is followed by the operative procedure itself and postoperative management. New chapters have been added to this edition that cover the latest techniques such as minimal invasive surgery, robotic surgery, and single orifice laparoscopic surgery.

The chapters are arranged in eight sections, with each section emphasizing the overall management of patients. Tricks of the trade of individual authors are included, as well as discussions of technical and clinical judgment.

The new and updated edition of Operative Pediatric Surgeryremains the pre-eminent operative guide to a full range of pediatric conditions.

Editorial Reviews

"The detail is remarkable. ¿ I anticipate that every training program in pediatric surgery and in pediatric urology would benefit by having a copy of this text available."¿A.A. Caldamone, Hasbro Children¿s Hospital, Brown University School of Medicine, Providence Rhode Island, USA, in Journal of Pediatric Urology " ¿ an attractive updated version of an excellent and generally accepted operative manual for pediatric surgeons. The uniform style of the description of surgical procedures is outstanding."¿Pediatric Surgery International "This is truly an exceptional offering in the field of operative paediatric surgery. It covers the subject comprehensively in sections and chapters that are clear and concise and logical in their approach and layout. ¿ The medical artwork is of a consistently high standard throughout and is in most cases of sufficient detail that one perhaps might not need to invest separately in a surgical atlas on the subject. ¿ highly accurate and up-to-date. Highly Commended."¿2014 BMA Medical Book Awards "The two senior editors, the three associate editors, and the approximately 120 contributors are, for the most part, well-known pediatric surgeons from around the world."¿Robert Arensman, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine for Doody's Review Service
