Fabio Botelho MD, MSc & Julia Ferreira MD

I, Fabio, am a Brazilian pediatric surgeon and the current Jean-Martin Laberge Global Pediatric Surgery Fellow at Montreal Children’s Hospital. My research focuses on investigating improvements in pediatric trauma care – the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in many countries in the world, including Brazil. My strong belief is that “surgery connects people and it is a tool for social change and global equality”.

I, Julia, also am a Brazilian pediatric surgeon, pursuing a Master’s in Experimental Surgery at McGill University. My research area is patient-centered care, connecting pediatric surgeons with patients and their families. I also lead a team of young surgeons in the fight against gender inequity in surgery.

Fabio and Julia have been happily married since 2019.
