This book provides an authoritative overview of the global development of surgical paediatrics. Biographical accounts of key people who developed this relatively new specialty, many of whom are now household names, are presented. The compendium also acknowledges the enormous contribution of imaging (ultrasound/MRI and PET scans), minimal invasive surgery, and fetal surgery, as well as the role of related journals and associations, in the progress of surgical paediatrics.
Many of the contributors have been instrumental to the development of surgical
paediatrics in their respective countries, and have considerable worldwide influence
on the management of children requiring surgical care. Through their valuable
insight and first-hand experience, this book not only shines a light on the
past achievements of previous generations of paediatric surgeons, but also serves
as a model to encourage future generations to do likewise.
