In the Beginning......

In the Beginning

What was but a dream in the late 1980's became a reality in 1999.

 

The latter part of the previous millennium has witnessed so many advances in the field of knowledge led to the development of subspecialties. For instance, the field of Internal Medicine now had subspecialty groups like cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, and so on. This reorientation towards subspecialization did not spare General Surgery.  And as cardiothoracic surgeons, transplant surgeons, and other subspecialists organized their own societies, it became clear that the Philippine College of surgeons (PCS) no longer stood for general surgeons alone. It had morphed into an umbrella organization for all these subspecialties.

In the late 1980s, Dr. Edgardo R. Cortez attempted to form a national organization of general surgeons. Meeting resistance, the concept persisted as a dream, until 1991, when then –PCS President Willie N. Lagdameo revived the issue. Stiff opposition met the very first brainstorming meeting. Meanwhile, in the Queen City of the South, the efforts of Drs. Marianito C. Ante, Kenneth S. Chan, Camilo M. Enriquez, Jr. Josemar A. Mercado and Stephen Sixto Siguan  paid of. The Cebu society of General Surgeons, Inc (CSGS) was chartered November 1993 with Dr. Cesar D. Chan as its first President. Dr. Samuel Trocio served as the keynote speaker in its formal launching. CSGS spearheaded continuing surgical education activities in cooperation with the –PCS –Cebu-Eastern Visayas Chapter, inviting General Surgery fellows from Manila. Social gathering and sports events further improved camaraderie, while surgical residents in Cube were trained for the Philippine Board of Surgery Exams through mock oral and written examinations.

In 1996, Dr. Lagdameo, now the Chairman of the newly created Board of Governors of the PCS, resurrected the idea for a national GS specialty group. He instructed CSGS President, Dr. Arturo T. Mancao, through the PCS Cebu Chapter Governor, Dr. Trocio, to submit a letter of proposal. The letter was endorsed to Dr. Florentino Doble, 1997 PCS President.  The succeeding president, Dr. Antonio B. Sison, favorably acted and tasked Drs. Adriano V. Laudico, Narciso S. Navarro, Jr., Edgardo Cortez, and Arturo De la Pena, together with some CSGS members, to promote the various chapters, and begin to draft a constitution.

During a general meeting at the 1998 PCS Midyear Convention in Davao City, a Board of Incorporators was formed.  by  December Annual Convention, having finished the Constitution and By-Laws, the Board convened a formal meeting to admit charter members.  After years of grueling groundwork, the cornerstone was finally put in place in January 26, 1996: The Philippine Society of General Surgeons, Incorporated, had arrived.

M E S S A G E


The annual convention of the Philippine Society of General Surgeons, Inc.  -  The PSGS Surgical  Forum  -  has  reached  its  12th  year  and  has  evolved  to  be  a  venue  where issues,  problems,  current  trends  and  prevailing controversies are  tackled  pri marily  by our own world- class speakers and resource persons.

 

This year, we will be discussing about Controversies in General Surgery  -  both those that are already  resolved  and those  that  continue  to  be  controversial.  Either way,  we general  surgeons  eventually  face  such  situations  in  our daily  practice  and  the  topics prepared by our convention committee will surely help us serve our patients better. We will also be presenting our new mission and vision statement which will guide us in our direction towards the next decade and beyond.

 

I would like to thank all our fellows for continuously supporting the surgical forum and your  society  in  general.  Let  me  recognize  as  well  all  the  members  of  the  ad  hoc committee who tirelessly prepared to assure the success  of our annual convention. Let me thank as well our friends and sponsors for their continuing support and partnership.

 

We  are  almost  1,800  strong  and  together,  we  can  assure  that  the  PSGS  and  the graduates that we produce are regionally competitive and globally recognized.

 

MABUHAY Ang siruhanong Pilipino. MABUHAY tayong lahat!
