Abstract

Adolescent medicine is a rapidly growing and an increasingly recognized discipline. Based upon our 6-yr experience with an active Division of Ad'olescent Medicine we believe that the adolescent's surgical diseases also are unique problems deserving of special interest. While other surgeons have assumed responsibility for care in many of the adolescent programs, the pediatric surgeons' background and training especially qualify them for a major role in this area. It is a stimulating and gratifying opportunity to which they should address themselves.
