AHPBA & IHPBA are here to serve your professional needs!
We invite you to join us so we can continue our work advancing HPB care to improve patient lives together.


We invite you to join AHPBA representing both surgical and non-surgical specialists throughout North, South and Central America who care for patients with diseases of the liver, pancreas, and biliary tree. All AHPBA members also receive dual membership in the International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (IHPBA).

We foster an atmosphere of diversity, excellence and collegiality among clinicians and scientists to advance both learning and patient care. Our organization promotes educational and professional development of its members and offers a yearly HPB meeting, research and traveling fellowship grants and several educational opportunities throughout the Americas.
