Written in a unique and innovative style, this book presents pediatric surgery in an interactive clinical context. Each chapter is built upon a specific disease or group of diseases, beginning with a typical case, presented interactively, just as it would be in encountered in clinical practice. These are actual cases that have been encountered by the author and are likely to be managed on any pediatric surgical service. The discussion that follows presents the most relevant issues pertaining to the topic, drawing on the index case, as well as multiple other cases that depict the entire spectrum of the disease or anomaly. The carefully selected suggested readings emphasize sentinel papers, high-quality reviews, and the best and most recent evidence published on the subject. A large number of illustrations help bring the clinical concepts to light. A number of high-quality videos provide a dynamic atlas of common procedures. The book is useful to the entire range of pediatric surgical trainees and practitioners, from the medical student or resident rotating on pediatric surgery, to the fellow preparing for certification, to the seasoned surgeon looking for an update on a particular subject or preparing for recertification. A large number of other physicians will find this book very useful, including general surgeons who evaluate and treat childhood surgical diseases, paediatricians and pediatric hospitalists who co-manage patients with surgeons, and obstetricians, pathologists, and radiologists who work closely with pediatric surgeons.

Key Features Provides a hands-on guide to the management of typical clinical scenarios for all pediatric surgery trainees and other professionals involved in the care of childhood surgical disease Presents more than 300 cases, covering the whole spectrum of pediatric surgery, illustrated in full-color and with an accompanying e-book Allows the reader to apply their knowledge to real-life situations and assess their level of expertise by the use of a case-based Q&A format
