Following the success of three previous editions, this new edition of Newborn Surgery continues to provide the most comprehensive information on the surgical management of neonatal disorders. Each chapter is thoroughly revised and updated, and there are eight new chapters on key topics in the specialty, including neonatal care in the delivery room, specific risks for pre-term infants, surgical safety, tissue engineering and stem cell research, and surgical implications of HIV.

Prem Puri is Newman Clinical Research Professor and Conway Fellow, UCD School of Medicine, Dublin, Ireland, and President, National Children's Research Centre, Our Lady’s Children's Hospital, Dublin.
Newborn Surgery defines itself as a comprehensive text for trainees and established specialists and on this point it certainly delivers. The breadth of topics is comprehensive and by stretching his net to the far corners of the globe, Professor Puri has managed to engage the world’s opinion formers to distil the wisdom of their practice into a few pages each. What this does for the trainee is to provide the very best platform to develop a working understanding of a topic and the direction to head towards to discover the truly novel elements.
