Caribbean Chapter

Brief history of the Chapter:

The chapter was formed in 2015 when surgeons with HPB interest decided to come together to share experiences and generate develop ideas for the pursuit of HPB surgery in the Caribbean. We represent several different territories in the Caribbean all with varying challenges but with a singular focus to combine our resources and efforts to bring about a greater awareness and improve outcomes in HPB in the Caribbean.
