Pediatric Surgery is indeed intimidating to the uninitiated and the clinical, nursing, and paraclinical personnel outside the “circles” handling children with surgical problems. This not only leads to plenty of mismanagement and even neglect of small babies crying for good care. Not only does this scare the medical students from foraying into the fascinating branch of Pediatric Surgery, but also ends up in poor outcomes in untrained hands, bringing disrepute to the branch.

Apart from the various initiatives taken from the associations and well-meaning seniors, this effort to bring out a simple book with simple explanations and good illustrations is surely bound to help not just the medical students and paramedical staff from learning the basics but also those medical practitioners practicing in primary care facilities.

Dr. Minakshi Bhosale needs to be lauded for her effort to bring out this book, which is aimed at demystifying Pediatric Surgery to medical students as well as nursing and paramedical persons.

Dr. Bhosale has successfully covered all the basic topics and has a simple and fluent language to explain the topics. She has also richly illustrated the book, further enhancing the visual appeal.

The Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons wholeheartedly congratulates Dr. Bhosale for this wonderful effort, and we would recommend her to take initiatives to get this book translated to various vernacular languages. That will go a long way in reducing the morbidity and mortality of children and also rejuvenate the branch.

The book is a must for all medical and nursing colleges, and the state governments should try to stock all the medical and paramedical institutions to procure the book and make it available in all their libraries.
