ASIPS was founded in 2009 as a multifaceted organization to bring together plastic surgeons of Indian heritage practicing in the United States.

This has taken the form of educational, social and philanthropic endeavors, both in the US and in India. The organization was met with the challenge to provide plastic surgery care to the under-served population in rural India. ASIPS has formed alliances with some of the largest physician organizations both in India and internationally to help achieve this goal.
