Our practice was founded as the San Antonio Pediatric Surgery Associates (SAPSA) in 1999 with the purpose of delivering the most modern state-of-the-art pediatric general and thoracic surgery available in San Antonio and south Texas. Since its inception, SAPSA has grown to include four trained pediatric surgeons who are committed to the highest possible standards of excellence in the surgical care of infants, children, and adolescents. Our surgeons act as a team, utilizing a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and management of all pediatric surgical disorders. Each surgeon is board-certified in pediatric surgery and is experienced in the management of both common and rare surgical diseases of children. Each of our surgeons has lectured and published extensively in the field of pediatric surgery, and we currently engage in clinical research in order to improve the surgical treatment of children worldwide.
In 2005, SAPSA was formally recognized as the Division of Pediatric Surgery within the Department of Surgery, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
