Review quote

"...provides an excellent update into the current state of the art for pediatric urology...easy to read and it is well illustrated. Pediatric nephrologists would find this a good way to update themselves on current standards in pediatric urology. Trainee surgeons will also find this a useful overview of the subject, as the book is concise enough to read in a single session." - Journal of Pediatrics and Child Health "Currently there are few books that provide a nice summary of current pediatric urological principles. This book will be useful for any individual who desires such a review." -Doody's Health Sciences and Book Review Journalshow more
