Aims & Scope

The journal presents original contributions and other special departments to provide the most current source of information and references in pediatric surgery. The journal is based on the need to improve the surgical care of infants and children, not only through advances in physiology, pathology, and surgical techniques, but also by attention to the unique emotional and physical needs of the young patient.

Case studies should be submitted to the journal's open access companion title, Journal of Pediatric Surgery Case Reports.
