Dear Colleagues and friends,

As Congress Chairman and on behalf of The Turkish Association of Pediatric Surgeons (TAPS), it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 8th World Congress of Pediatric Surgery which will be held at Titanic Mardan Palace Hotel in Antalya, Türkiye between 12-15th November 2025.  

It is an honor and a privilege to have guests, mutual friends and distinguished faculty from all over the world joining us. We all work, share information and knowledge to ensure that every infant and child who suffers from a surgical disease receives the best care by a pediatric surgeon. This event will bring together key speakers from top-tier centers for this purpose. Undoubtedly, pre-congress courses moderated by distinguished trainers and faculty will be as attractive as always been, followed by the Congress sessions with inspiring keynote lectures, panel discussions and presentations.
