The APSA Annual Meeting is the forum for discussions on the current – and future – state of pediatric surgery. It's an opportunity to share your work with experts in the field, create new collaborations and stay up to date on advances and trends. Educational and scientific sessions, poster presentations, plus special presentations and the exhibit hall will showcase the latest research, techniques and equipment.
