The Division of Paediatric Surgery in University of Malaya was established in 1995 under the headship of Professor TM Ramanujam. We started with 18 inpatient beds and a section of the ward that catered specifically to the care of newborns requiring surgery. We were the first paediatric surgical service in the country to provide minimal invasive surgery in children in the country. We were also the first institution to provide a structured postgraduate training programme in the country with the introduction of the Master of Paediatric Surgery programme in 2000.
