The field of Pediatric Surgery is continuously advancing. Pediatric surgeons have to stay current in the methods of evaluation and techniques of surgery in order to provide best care for infants and children at a tertiary level and to teach residents and fellows. Additionally, the field of research in Pediatric health care must keep pace with current clinical developments. Ideally, this conference would bring together research and clinical concepts to achieve advances in patient care.
