About Us

Despite PAPS being one of the largest pediatric surgery associations in the world, we share a strong sense of family with fellow members and guests.  We have a lot of fun at meetings, and 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!
