Breaking The Boundaries of Pediatric Intestinal
Rehabilitation and Transplantation 

Join us June 26 to 28, 2020 for the 11th International Pediatric Intestinal Failure and Rehabilitation Symposium (PIFRS 2020). This global meeting is designed to bring pediatric gastroenterologists, surgeons, hepatologists, scientists and allied health professionals who have dedicated themselves to the care of children with intestinal failure.
So much has transpired in the past two decades and this meeting will celebrate the tremendous advances in medical and surgical care for the intestinal failure patient while addressing the challenges that face the field. The premeeting symposia as well as the main meeting will address the latest developments in etiology, pathophysiology, surgical and non surgical therapies, quality of life and outcomes based work in the field.
PIFRS 2020 integrates medical and surgical dialogue to help build off the dramatic interdisciplinary work that has characterized intestinal failure management. Global leaders in the field will set the stage for important next steps and networking.


Early-bird pricing has been extended to April 30, 2020!
