Given that the pediatric patient can range from the newborn to the adolescent, endoscopic interventions in pediatric urology require the surgeon to fine tune his procedures to suit the patient's age and size. Minimally Invasive Approaches to Pediatric Urology offers the pediatric urologic surgeon a guide to performing laparoscopic procedures efficiently, effectively and with great benefit to the patient.
