8th Congress of Pediatric Surgery with International Participation continues to accentuate interdisciplinary cooperation. Our standard scientific program in pediatric surgery shall be enriched by integrating topics from pediatrics, anesthesiology, radiology and other closely related medical fields that intertwine and complement each other.
The social program shall, yet again, be emphasized as one of central events at the meeting, owing to the fact that we percept it as an important element of such meetings that allows colleagues to bond, as on a professional, so on an informal level. Furthermore, it allows participants to get acquainted with the region in which the meeting is being held.

You are more than welcome to forward this invitation to your co-workers and colleagues who might have some interest in the topics and lectures planned. Thank you!

Kindest regards,
Nikica Lesjak, MD
