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.

This year's symposium focused on Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and featured a hands-on endoscopic workshop on foregut endoscopy, dilatation and stent placement.  Attendees discussed complex cases, complications, as well as clinical and experimental studies concerning the foregut.  A highlight is the PAAFIS robotic championship held on a robotic Simulator.
