55th Annual Meeting Greeting


Welcome to the 55th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons. This event will be held for the first time in Quito, Ecuador, South America. The City of Quito, Luz de America is declared as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO. The organizers are working with great enthusiasm to make your stay in Ecuador an unforgettable one. You will attend an event which will include activities such as tourism, re-encountering after Covid 19, sharing and friendship. The attendants will enjoy various touristic wonders that our country offers such as The Center of the World, The Galapagos Islands, the subtropical forests, the Volcano Route and the colonial, cultural and historical cities, together with scientific activities and pleasant moments of relaxation. The great hospitality, we offer to all those who attend the Annual PAPS Scientific Meeting will guarantee the visit to be worthy.

About Us

PAPS is one of the largest pediatric surgery associations in the world but quite unique with an uplifting and fun sense of family between all members and guests. We are much more relaxed than any other surgical society. We don't even allow neckties at any PAPS meeting....wear one and it will be quickly cut off!

Join PAPS to share ideas and meet great new friends.
