About this book


This book focuses on standard operative techniques for important diseases in pediatric surgery, especially in neonates and infants, while also offering a wealth of schematic drawings and photographs to help readers understand the surgical techniques. Because of the rarity of the diseases and shortage of advising doctors, operative techniques for neonatal and infant surgery are difficult to learn. In order to understand essential operative procedures, schematic drawings and suitable intraoperative photographs are called for. Operative General Surgery in Neonates and Infants was written by leading experts in pediatric surgery with extensive experience in their respective fields. The contents provide detailed practical advice on the surgical procedures and perioperative management in neonates and infants. This book is a valuable guide for trainees and a helpful refresher text for specialized pediatric surgeons and can also be used to explain operative procedures to parents.

“The book ‘introduces the most up-to-date representative Japanese pediatric surgical procedures and points in pre- and postoperative management.’ … the book achieves its goals. The book is clearly written and can be understood by all. … The line drawings, well done, sharp, concise, and easily understood, stand out as the best features of the book. … This English translation of a Japanese book is a good and fairly complete survey of all things in the realm of pediatric surgery.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)
