About this book

This concise textbook of pediatric surgery is designed to guide the reader logically from symptoms and signs to diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter is devoted to one of 35 key symptoms and signs, which are organized according to six body regions: head, neck, chest, abdomen, urogenital system, and back. In each case, a brief assessment of the presenting sign/symptom and differential diagnosis is followed by discussion of occurrence, clinical presentation and significance, diagnostic work-up, treatment, and prognosis. Informative tables, illustrations, and up-to-date references are included throughout. Readers will also have access to an e-learning tool developed in collaboration with the Institute of Medical Education, University of Bern, which highlights the characteristics of pediatric surgical disorders and their treatment and includes clinical, radiological, and intraoperative images.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book springs from a 10-year project to provide e-learning modules in pediatric surgery. … It is intended for all practitioners who care for children and might encounter surgical diseases in their patients. … it does contain much good information for students and pediatric house officers. … a nice reference on the presentation of pediatric surgical problems.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
