El Capitulo Peruano del AHPBA/IHPBA fue fundado en Marzo del 2013 con 11 miembros, siendo el primer presidente el Dr. Víctor Torres , unidos por el deseo de compartir y difundir las experiencias en el manejo quirúrgico de las enfermedades HPB, a través de nuestras actividades científicas mensuales.

En Agosto del 2015 se realizó con éxito el Primer curso Internacional HPB en Lima, contando con más de 200 inscritos bajo el soporte del IHPBA y AHPBA que hizo posible la venida de destacados cirujanos como Elijah Dixon, Javier Lendoire, Oscar Imventarza ,Sandra Oks y Charles Vollmer.

IHPBA

IHPBA dates back to 1978 when it was founded as the International Biliary Association (IBA) in San Francisco, California. The new IHPBA was formally inaugurated at its first General Assembly on May 31st 1994 in Boston, Massachusetts, and USA. The IHPBA was incorporated as a non-profit organisation with the goals of finding effective treatment for the disorders of the liver, pancreas and biliary tree: to promote understanding, encourage change, study problems, foster friendship in the field of HPB surgery, strive towards highest ethical standards and advance education and career development in the field.

Further information can be found in Dr Ronald Tompkins’ insight into the history of IHPBA and its predecessor IBA (the International Biliary Association) here and a full history of IHPBA can be found in the account by Drs Pitt, Williamson, Toouli, Gouma and Windsor here.
