From the reviews:

"‘Since a picture speaks more than a thousand words, this monograph is designed to acquaint both the novice and the experienced surgeon with pediatric endoscopic procedures using surgical images and diagrams.’ With almost 550 pages of photographs and diagrams, this text accomplishs its task admirably. … This book is appropriate for surgical residents, fellows in pediatric surgery training, and pediatric surgeons."
