Message from the President

"As we reach this milestone in our organization, we remember the hard work and unceasing efforts of our founders and learn from their commitment and achievements.  We also salute the dedication of our mentors and the pillars of the training programs of pediatric surgery."

- Santiago C. Aquino, M.D.


"For an organization to reach this milestone is proof enough of its worth, its importance, its resilience, its significance, and its invaluable role in ushering in the next centennials.  The organization's history must be recordedto serve as the platform towards the future.  The awards reaped by its members will be the laurels to emulate and the barometer to surpass by its future members.  Such is the PHILIPPINE SOCIETY OF PEDIATRIC SURGEONS and the reasons for the printing of this commemorative book."

- Willie N. Lagdameo, M.D.
