Textbook Review: Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition

Upto a third of your time can be spent looking after children with gastrointestinal and liver problems.  Yet, there isn’t an India centric current textbook that can be used for reference. To fill this void, the Apollo Centre for Advanced Pediatrics has brought out a comprehensive textbook of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. 

With chapters written by an array of national and international authors, it promises to be a useful guide. Day to day clinical case scenarios have been incorporated in certain chapters to make it relevant for clinical practice and post graduate teaching. 

Important topics including surgical aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology have been covered in a concise, point wise fashion along with vivid photos to aid learning.

This book has been published by Jaypee and it will be available at Pedicon 2015 and hope that it meets your expectations. If it does, kindly let your trainees know.

The textbook is also available here on
