Pediatric Surgery in Pakistan
Pakistan is a land of loving people and beautiful landscapes. Since its birth in 1947 it has achieved high standards in various areas of medical care. Pediatric surgery got a slow start but in the last two decade pediatric surgery has achieved new horizons in patients care. The number of pediatric surgeons showed steady increase and at present there are more than 150 trained pediatric surgeons providing excellent care to more than 55 million children in the country. Pediatric surgical facilities are centered in major cities around the country. With the improving standards in patients care young pediatric surgeons are now spreading to smaller towns.
