Pediatric Surgery provides an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of current practice in the field. It is divided into three volumes, with a total of seven sections that focus on general principles, newborn surgery, general pediatric surgery, tumor surgery, trauma, transplantation, and pediatric urology surgery.
