Alfred A. de Lorimier Endowed Chair

Alfred deLorimier B&W HeadshotThe Division of Pediatric Surgery at UCSF owes much to contributions of Alfred de Lorimier. His influence has continued to shape the innovative nature of our division to this day. 

Our beloved colleague, Dr. Alfred A. de Lorimier, died of lung cancer at his home in California's Alexander Valley on October 4, 2009. Dr. de Lorimier was the founder of the pediatric surgery program at the University of California, San Francisco, and the first academic pediatric surgeon in Northern California. His legacy in the world of pediatric surgery is profound: dozens of pediatric and fetal surgeons have come out of the division he started alone in 1964, many of them influential leaders in the field today.
