About Us

The Canadian Hepato-Pancreatico-biliary Association was formed over a decade ago by Dr. Francis Sutherland and Dr. Michael Marcaccio as an organization to promote and coordinate professional, educational, research and social activities among HPB surgeons in Canada.


The CHPBA works closely with the Canadian Association of General Surgeons to provide HPB related content, invited lectureships and continuing medical education to Canadian surgeons through local and national meetings.


Canadian members have always played a prominent role and made significant contributions to the AHPBA, the incorporation of the CHPBA as a chapter of the AHPBA is a tremendous honour that will provide important support and guidance in expanding the educational activities for HPB surgeons in Canada through consensus conferences, meetings, lectureships and courses.
