Guatemala Chapter

Brief History of the Chapter

With my participation in the 2nd. Congress AHPBA Chapter Ecuador in The Galapagos Islands, began the dream of establishing the Guatemalan Chapter, with the unconditional support of Dr. Nestor Gomez and with the collaboration of Dr. Javier Lendoire, I returned to my country with this goal. I talked about that possibility with some colleagues and on December 2013 with the participation of 6 members, the dream came true.

Our expectation is to increase our members both nationally and Central America area and the primary purpose is the benefit of all patient with HPB pathology through the exchange of knowledge and improving the skills of already trained specialists and encouraging future generations.
