“This book is an excellent resource written for any non-specialist looking to further his or her understanding of pediatric urology and surgery - especially primary care providers, general practitioners, pediatricians, students, and trainees. … This book is a fantastic resource for non-specialists. The highlights of the book are the excellent diagrams and clinical pictures in each chapter.” (Puneeta Ramachandra, Doody's Book Reviews, September 18, 2020)
