Description

With contributions from top experts in the field, Pediatric Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery provides clinically-focused text on the full spectrum of common and rare congenital and acquired pediatric conditions.

The one-volume reference encompasses the latest cutting-edge advances, organized in a concise, easy-to-digest format, enabling clinicians to get to the heart of the matter and deftly integrate practical content into everyday practice.

Organized into six major sections, every chapter reflects the expertise of leading authorities who discuss specific topics for which they have achieved prominence. The organizational structure is consistent throughout 43 chapters, covering core essentials for managing the patient: introduction, diagnosis, nonsurgical management, operative treatment, complications, and key points.
