This superbly illustrated book on the surgical treatment of pediatric colorectal problems focuses in particular on the specific technical maneuvers that may be considered key to successful results. The presented management concepts are based on a database comprising over 5000 patients, more than 2300 of whom have been operated on by one of the authors as lead surgeon over the past 30 years. The full range of colorectal disorders in children is thus covered, from cloaca and fistulas to rare presentations. In addition, chapters are included on topics such as prenatal diagnosis, minimally invasive techniques, recent advances in imaging, and a bowel management program for fecal incontinence. Surgical Treatment of Colorectal Problems in Children is eminently a practical book. Clarity, simplicity and applicability are emphasized throughout. The excellence of the illustrations and photographs is a crucial feature and the reader will also have access to instructive videos of procedures.

"Authored by the individual who has made his life's work this narrow set of congenital anomalies, this is, without a doubt, the single most definitive book on anorectal anomalies since the landmark work and text of Douglas Stephens. ... Anyone faced with the care of these children will find this book a treasure trove ... ." (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2015)
