Arab Pediatric Neurosurgical Society (APNS) aims to be the main PANS Committee representing Arab Pediatric Neurosurgeons in the Arab world with a mission of developing the Pediatric Neurosurgery care for the benefit of patients and physicians.
Arab Pediatric Neurosurgical Society (APNS) was formerly named Pan Arab Pediatric Neurosurgery Chapter, a sub-specialty of Pan Arab Neurosurgical Society (PANS). It was founded during the last PANS Congress held on December 4-7, 2014 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. As the Chapter was growing so fast, it was decided by the Board of Directors to shift it to a society.
APNS is dedicated to bringing pediatric neurosurgery as a subspecialty in the Arab world countries. Therefore, APNS is an important tool to bring Arab neurosurgeons with the same area of interest and expertise together to bring out the best in each one of us. We’re transforming the way we continuously improve our ability to maintain high level of expertise, scientific knowledge and training through academic programs, hand-on teaching techniques, visiting and training in advanced Pediatric Neurosurgery centers and departments, and eventually to ensure that Pediatric Neurosurgery patient care is at the highest level compared to the best existing centers in the world.
As of present, we are acquiring the membership of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Society.
