Greetings from PAPS President David Tuggle

 Dear Colleagues,


Greetings fellow pediatric surgeons. As we emerge from the pandemic we are thrilled to announce registration and abstract submission is open for our 2022 in-person meeting. The PAPS meeting in Quito, Ecuador this September will complete our goal to host our first meeting in South America. Situated astride the equator we will have the opportunity to share our unique experiences of the past 2 years. If your schedule permits, you may have the opportunity to visit the Galapagos before or after the meeting. This will be an exciting event for all of us and I hope to see you there. And as always, no ties allowed.


David Tuggle MD FACS FAAP

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.
