Anyone who has seen a child recover from a deep cut or a broken bone knows that kids are made to heal. Their bodies are more resilient and adaptive than adults. And yet children are often treated as an afterthought by the medical establishment and seen by doctors who have little or no pediatric training. In this deeply inspiring memoir Dr. Kurt Newman draws from his long experience as a pediatric surgeon working at one of our nation's top children's hospitals to make the case that children are more than miniature adults. Through the story of his own career and of the brave kids he has treated over the years, he reveals the revolution that is taking place in children's medicine. When he decided to become a pediatric surgeon, the field was in its infancy, struggling for esteem. Now, nearly forty years later, it is at the forefront of exhilarating new discoveries in everything from cancer research to mental health. But few parents know how to access the best care for their children. Dr. Newman wrote Healing Children to help guide parents-not just of sick kids but of all kids.
