Paediatric Surgery offers a thorough, practical overview of the subject as well as detailed information about a wide variety of unusual and unfamiliar conditions. It is aimed at both paediatric and general surgeons in training as well as clinical nurse specialists who want concise knowledge whilst in day-to-day practice, and is an invaluable revision tool for both MRCS and FRCS (Paediatrics) post-graduate exams. It will also appeal to more experienced surgeons who want a simple, up-to-date refresher about the topic.

Content is structured by presentation, to help with problem-solving and diagnosis, but also combines information of the pathology involved, and descriptions of the relevant operative surgery. More detail is given to techniques likely to be performed by the surgeon-in-training, compared to more complex procedures where only the principles are given in order to aid participation rather than actual practice.

Contributory chapters are written by UK consultants who have a recognised interest and expertise in their field with a clear message to be didactic, pragmatic and practical.
