Welcome Message

President of the 7th WOFAPS World Congress

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 7th World Congress of the World Federation of Associations of Pediatric Surgeons (WOFAPS), which will take place in Prague, Czech Republic in October 2022. We are living in a century of fascinating development of information technology and information sharing through the Internet and social networks during the Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed the way people communicate with each other, including congresses and professional meetings.

However, even a well-organized online congress is no substitute for face-to-face meetings in professional and social discussions. That is why I would like to invite you to a classic, face-to-face congress of pediatric surgery in Prague, a charming city in the heart of Europe.

I believe that after two long years of virtual reality, it will be the right time for the world community of pediatric surgeons to meet in person. The main topics of the congress, with the participation of many personalities from the world of pediatric surgery, will certainly reflect the latest trends in education, clinical practice and research.

I am convinced that in the atmosphere of historic Prague we will appreciate together the irreplaceable value of personal meetings and working friendships for the further development of global pediatric surgery in every country and all over the world.

Prof. Michal Rygl, MD, Ph.D.
President of the 7th WOFAPS World Congress


WOFAPS President

Dear Friends and colleagues, pediatric surgeons around the world, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the WOFAPS 7th World congress in Prague 12–15 October 2022. It has been some time since we met in person; it has been difficult for all of us. We have discovered that nothing replaces the face to face and social gatherings.

The meeting will display the most recent updates and innovations covering the different subspecialties in pediatric surgery. There will be a distinguished selection of keynote lectures given by world leaders and top experts in our field from renowned centers worldwide. The panels will be in-depth coverage of some of the hot topics and debates in Pediatric surgery to reach the most updated guidelines in practice.

The hands-on pre-congress workshops will help skill transfer from experts in essential areas of interest to young pediatric surgeons. It is also a perfect chance to present and discuss your work and research during the 7th world congress in Prague. 

The venue in Prague, a historical city in the center of Europe, promises a lovely social experience besides the rich scientific program.

It will be my pleasure to meet you all in Prague in October 2022.

Sameh Shehata
WOFAPS President
