About this book

In addition to serving as a useful reference for pediatric surgeons and general surgeons in clinical practice, each chapter is designed for use by general surgical residents rotating in pediatric surgery and chief residents who have decided to obtain further specialized training in a Pediatric Surgery fellowship program.
