The sixth edition of The Kelalis-King-Belman Textbook of Clinical Pediatric Urology presents state-of-the-art knowledge and common-sense practice in all areas of clinical pediatric urology in a single, easily accessible volume. Clinical in orientation and practical in presentation, it covers every disorder and disease, diagnostic method, and appropriate treatment in pediatric urology from the embryo onwards. Widely acknowledged as the leading reference in the field, the book is essential reading for all practitioners who deal with urological disorders of childhood, whether trainees, residents or experienced specialists.

The book begins with chapters on evaluating the patient and general principles of pediatric urology, including the use of advanced diagnostic imaging techniques and the increasing importance of minimally invasive surgical techniques. It then proceeds through the entire urinary tract from adrenal gland to external genitalia, discussing anatomy, normal and abnormal development, anomalies and diseases and their treatment.

Reviews for The Kelalis--King--Belman Textbook of Clinical Pediatric Urology

Praise for the previous edition: I suspect this is the bible for paediatric urologists... it should be available in every urology department -Urology News Lots of good illustrations, clinical images and radiology. It has some very strong chapters on reconstructive surgery and duplex anomalies, and some interesting chapters on office ultrasonography and upper tract urodynamics. ...I think that this book will be a worthy addition to most departmental libraries. -Journal of Pediatric Urology This is a standard textbook. Paediatric urologists will want their own copies. Departments of paediatric surgery and nephrology need a departmental copy, and hospital libraries can easily justify the outlay of a book, if their institution looks after children. -Pediatrics and Child Health Exhaustive and authoritative... This is the definitive text, well written by authorities in the field. Anyone with a primary or peripheral interest in pediatric urology should buy it and study it. -Journal of Urology
