While there are Pediatric Urology texts for Pediatric Urologists and for General Urologists, there are none for Primary Care Physicians. This book is written specifically for the primary care physician, the initial contact for the many children with urologic conditions. This text will assist the primary care physician in the recognition of and participation in the care of children with these common problems. These include both congenital and acquired conditions. Management may involve medical and/or surgical intervention. The contributing authors were selected for their internationally recognized expertise and straight forward educational styles.
Pediatric Urology for the Primary Care Physician will significantly help our primary care colleagues in the evaluation and management of children with genito-urinary problems.

"Pediatric primary care providers are often the first to see children with urological abnormalities. Experts in pediatric urology and pediatric nephrology author this book specifically for these physicians. ... This book is a must-have in every pediatrician's office as a quick reference to different urological abnormalities they may encounter in their patients. ... Medical students rotating in urology as well as pediatric and junior urology residents will find this book valuable as well." (Ahmad H. Bani-Hani, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2015)
