J R Coll Surg Edinb. 1995 Apr;40(2):84-7.


Advances in the sophistication of operative and anaesthetic techniques and progress in pre- and postoperative care have contributed to the improved survival of infants undergoing surgery in the neonatal period. Neonatal surgery must be concentrated in designated regional centres where expertise of the full range of paediatric specialties is available to promote research and development of the specialty and to train future generations of paediatric surgeons.
