International Pediatric Surgical Congress
WOFAPS Annual Meeting

Integrated approach for better children’ outcomes - avoiding disability
June 6th - June 9th, 2018

Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

The WOFAPS Executive Board decided to organize its Annual Meeting on the occasion of the 2018 Congres of the Romanian Society of Pediatric Surgery, in Bucharest – Romania, June 6-9, 2018. Distinguished professors, members of this Board will share their experience as Guest Lecturer of the Congress.

Such an occasion should not be missed by anyone involved in the care of complex pediatric surgical pathology, especialy congenital malformations.

Considering the challenges faced by all and each specialist, involved in offering optimal treatment to patients born with one or several congenital malformations, the Congress will represent an excellent opportunity for a close update and discussion.

The scientific program will take up a large variety of issues and will provide a model of good clinical practice, an occasion for residents, specialists, consultants to learn, verify, or reinforce their experience.

During Courses, sessions of live surgery demonstrations will get you familiar with tips and tricks in pediatric surgery. The program will continue with oral/poster presentations, round tables, workshops, keynote sessions, meet expert lunches, symposia. Dedicated sesions for intensive care, neonathology, radiology, ENT, orthopedy will take place.

The scene of argumentative debates will be opened to everybody.

The social program will bring you to the cultural life of the "Little Paris” as it was called Bucharest in the period between the two World Wars and offers you a glimpse of what means a „Latin spirituality in a sea of Slavonic culture”, as it was considered this Romano-Dacian Comunity in 430 AD, by Herodotus.

Post congress tours are proposed by our experienced organizing agency Romania Travel Plus.

We look forward to meet you in Bucharest,on this occasion.

Prof. Dr. Sebastian Ionescu
