Surgically Shaping Children will be of great interest to clinicians, ethicists, and parents. The book discusses ethical and social aspects of three interventions: cleft lip repair, limb lengthening in children with dwarfism, and surgery for infants with ambiguous genitalia or intersex conditions. Notably, the contributors are parents, adults born with these conditions, clinicians, and ethicists. As such, Surgically Shaping Children provides a unique multidisciplinary examination of the issues raised.
