The conference will consist of scientific and research plenary sessions, inspiring keynote lectures, and opportunities to network with pediatric surgical colleagues from around the world at the nation’s epicenter for medical research and patient care. These sessions will feature pediatric surgery professionals to discuss essential topics and perspectives on pediatric surgery.

Additionally, there are keynote speakers lined up to discuss their experiences and share key perspectives.
