My Review

If Pediatric surgery 7th eidtion by Grosfeld and Coran is too much for you than this book can cover your bases. When i entered my residency i was told that this book covers Urology better than the Pediatric Surgery 7th edition and it is a must read to pass the exams. Also if the system of exam in any country favors cramming than this book is crammable. This is a book which residents should keep in situations when the main book is just too long and time is short and some state of art patient presentation is required to be made.
