The company is based in Athens and now represents about 160 pediatric surgeons, while it also has probationary members, who are specialized pediatric surgeons and associate members from other related fields. The purpose of the company is the promotion of pediatric surgery in Greece and the utilization of the work performed by the Greek Pediatric Surgeons, for the benefit of society as a whole and their scientific status.
