What is PAAFIS?
PAAFIS is an interdisciplinary forum on foregut disease from birth to adults. It brings together surgeons, gastroenterologists, pediatricians, therapists, as well as patients and caregivers, providing a platform for comprehensive care on all aspects of the human foregut. The mission of PAAFIS is to help medical and surgical communities around the world in their care for all types of disease of the foregut in an interdisciplinary manner. Our symposia provide hands-on experience and share medical knowledge among physicians, practitioners, therapists and all other interested persons. We are one of the few organizations where patients and their families are also invited to come and discuss their problems and concerns, and obtain free medical and surgical advice from leaders in the field. We welcome new members from everywhere around the world who are willing to learn, teach, and discuss their experience.
