About this book

A vast number of children in the United States are evaluated and treated for urologic conditions by urologists practicing general urology due to the relatively few fellowship-trained pediatric urologists. Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist’s Guide is written specifically for general urologists as a concise and comprehensive reference of the more common pediatric urologic conditions. Other health practitioners (i.e. pediatrician, family practitioner, residents, medical students, and mid-level providers) will also find this book a key reference. Written by well-respected pediatric urologists, this volume will assist the health care provider to rapidly review the essential aspects of the physical examination, evaluation, diagnostic testing, and management while the patient is still in the office. The chapters are arranged into four sections to allow for easier access to the information: office urology, genitalia, urinary tract, and miscellaneous topics. Furthermore, the first chapter of the book will be dedicated to facts and figures (ex. normal penile and renal lengths based on age, dosing of common medications, and grading system for vesicoureteral reflux) that serves as a single source for this information. Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist’s Guide offers the reader the essential information to assist them in the care of children.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A comprehensive guide to common pediatric urology conditions, and the book provides up-to-date information and treatment recommendations for the commonly seen conditions. Attending general urologists who care for pediatric patients are the intended audience, but other healthcare practitioners, such as primary care physicians, students, residents, and nurses, would find it helpful. It is a useful guide for those who occasionally care for children with urologic problems, as it provides up-to-date, well-referenced information as well as treatment recommendations.” (Jennifer A. Hagerty, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)

“Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist’s Guide will serve as a quick reference for general urologists and other clinicians … . a useful tool for other clinicians such as pediatricians, family practitioners, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who desire a searchable quick-reference handbook for their clinic. … an easy-to-read clinical reference that covers the full range of routine pediatric urologic conditions in a concise, searchable format with numerous figures, illustrations, and tables. It is a worthwhile clinical handbook for general urologists … .” (Chester J. Koh, Journal of the American Medical Association, December, 2011)
