The definitive illustrated resource on the surgical management of infants and children -- with an emphasis on operative technique

Operative Pediatric Surgery, Second Edition is a comprehensive, well-illustrated text that delivers expert coverage of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric surgical disease. This detailed single-volume resource is enhanced by numerous drawings, radiographs, and photographs that illustrate the authors’ preferred operative techniques. Wherever appropriate, diagnostic and care guidelines are also included.

Operative Pediatric Surgery, Second Edition is divided into 11 sections that include a total of 100 chapters. The book opens with an informative General Principles section that provides important background information on topics such as the history of pediatric surgery, ethical considerations, pediatric surgical critical care, and office-based ambulatory surgery. The rest of the text is organized primarily by organ, enhanced by a timely section on solid organ transplantation.

In this Second Edition, each chapter author has thoroughly updated and refreshed their topic, and in many instances, minimally invasive operative techniques are included with open approaches. There are also exciting new chapters on:

  • Hypospadias
  • Vesicoureteral reflux
  • Non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas
  • Gastrointestinal polyps and cancer
  • Adolescent bariatric surgery

    Operative Pediatric Surgery will prove to be an essential reference for pediatric surgeons seeking optimal diagnosis and treatment approaches for their patients.
