Paediatric Endoscopic surgeons group of India (PESI) was founded by  Dr. Ramkumar Raghupathy in Coimbatore. PESI was formally inaugurated in May 2005 in Coimbatore with 21 founder members, which has presently increased to more than 400 members.

As laparoscopic surgery has become an essential part of any surgical practice, Paediatric surgeons of India under the leadership of Prof. T Dorairajan and Prof. Ramkumar Raghupathy thought of carrying the legacy forward. Paediatric laparoscopy requires added skills and dexterity on the part of surgeons compared to other branches. The limited space for access and ergonomics in children makes laparoscopic surgery in children more demanding. Hence the group strives to target the budding paediatric surgeons and post graduate students in Paediatric Surgery by giving them adequate exposure for performing safe laparoscopic surgery.

Long live PESI
