B.A.P.E.S is a non-profit organisation set up to support paediatric endoscopic surgery and minimally invasive therapy in children. We also provide educational and networking opportunities to paediatric endoscopic surgeons.
Established in 1999, B.A.P.E.S seeks to improve standards in paediatric endoscopic surgery and minimally invasive therapy by promoting research and learning opportunities. Our organisation has instituted a number of fellowships and awards to encourage study in paediatric endoscopy, keyhole surgery, laparoscopic surgery, paediatric surgery, and paediatric urology.
We also support our members in professional development by organising intensive training and scholarship courses, designed to improve the outcomes for infants and children everywhere.
