Reviews

“This book reviews all aspects of the umbilicus and the umbilical cord, including all congenital and acquired conditions affecting these structures. … The audience is primarily clinicians who treat children. Surgeons, pediatricians, medical students, and those interested in medical history will find interesting and useful information. … This is a very thorough review of the umbilicus and the umbilical cord. Although it is narrowly focused on the umbilicus, it covers the topic exhaustively and well.” (Vincent R. Adolph, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2018)
