Surgery of the Liver, Bile Ducts and Pancreas in Children, Third Edition describes the modern approach to the diagnosis, management and surgery of childhood conditions of the liver and associated structures. The first edition was recognized worldwide as a landmark publication and helped to establish pediatric hepatobiliary surgery as a discrete subspecialty; the second was expanded to include pancreatic diseases, transplantation and trauma. This third edition is overseen by a new editorial team from two world-leading centers for children’s liver surgery: King’s College Hospital in London, and Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago. The book has been further expanded and updated by a team of international experts to take account of the very latest advances in research and practice.

Praise for the previous edition:
"I have no doubt that this will prove to be a valuable reference text for all clinicians involved in the surgical care of children with disorders of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas, and for hepatobiliary specialists themselves."
—British Journal of Surgery
"This book will serve as an invaluable resource for gastroenterologists, paediatricians, surgeons, nurses, and others involved in the surgical care of children with liver, biliary, or pancreatic disorders, whether at a specialist children's centre or a district hospital, and will appeal to trainees, whose exposure these days to complex hepatobiliary surgery is limited. In addition, gastroenterologists and surgeons treating the increasing number of adults with disorders of childhood will find this book a most helpful companion."
