Greetings from the A-PHPBA 2017 Local Organizing Committee
On behalf of the organizing committe, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 6th Biennial Congress of the Asian-Pacific Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (A-PHPBA) hosted by the Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery (JSHBPS) to be held June 7-10, 2017 in Yokohama, Japan. This congress will be held in conjunction with the 29th Annual Congress of JSHBPS and as such our annual JSHBPS congress will become a global meeting.
The Asian Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery (ASHBPS) was founded by Honorary President Prof. Tadahiro Takada in 1991. In 2005 the ASHBPS transformed into the A-PHPBA, which has seen tremendous growth and has become ever more attractive. Now the A-PHPBA is one of the regional associations of the IHPBA; however, the active membership and number of participants of the A-PHPBA is the largest in the IHPBA. The Asian Pacific region shares the same problems regarding HPB diseases and many younger HPB surgeons have enthusiasm for learning HPB surgery and acquiring knowledge about HPB disease.
The A-PHPBA provides an opportunity to learn about HPB disease and to share knowledge and ideas with other countries' experts. Now HPB surgeons have to learn not only advanced surgery and minimally invasive surgery, such as the laparoscopic approach, but also multidisciplinary treatments for HPB disease. Also we would like to discuss these important issues with surgeons and doctors in other fields.
The JSHBPS has been aiming at real globalization. Therefore, we have decided to make the theme of this joint congress "East meets West". The program will show the initiation and development of surgery and interventional approaches in the HPB field. The participants will be provided with tremendously important messages and encouragment through this special program.
June is one of the best seasons in Japan. Yokohama is the most attractive city near Tokyo and the access from Haneda Tokyo International Airport is very convenient.
We look froward to welcoming numerous participants to this congress and to seeing our friends from around the world in Yokohama in June 2017.
