Leslie H. Blumgart Historical Lecture

The Leslie H. Blumgart Historical Lectureship was established to offer broad historical and educational content in honor of Leslie H. Blumgart’s legacy. Dr. Blumgart was one of the pioneering hepatobiliary surgeons of our time, and his contributions to our field are enormous and well known to all in HPB surgery. His body of work was largely responsible for establishing the modern standards of HPB surgery, and many of the principles and techniques that he described remain in active practice. Indeed, whether directly or indirectly, Dr. Blumgart has been a mentor to all in HPB surgery.
