Japan Chapter

Brief History of the Chapter

The Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery was founded in 1993 and currently holds 3524 members. We decided to function as a Japan Chapter for A-PHPBA/IHPBA in 2012. As of Dec. 2012, approximately 130 of our members are active members for A-PHPBA/IHPBA. We are encouraging our members to apply for the membership for A-PHPBA/IHPBA. In June 2013, we had the 25th annual meeting in Utsunomiya with approximately 2000 participants. In this meeting, we had the first joint session with A-PHPBA/IHPBA inviting distinguished HPB surgeons from all over the world. We decided to continue the joint session in our future annual meeting.
