Dear colleagues,

We are proud to inform that the fifteenth national HPB surgical congress and the sixth HPB surgical nursing congress, which are held by our Association every 2 years, will be held in İstanbul between 9-12 September 2021 as the “15th Turkish HPB Surgery Congress and the 6th HPB Surgical Nursing Congress”. As the congress organizing committee, we prepared an effective program to discuss the rapid changes in the treatment of liver, biliary tract and pancreatic diseases and the developing medical technologies in this field with valuable members of our community. For this purpose, we developed our program in line with the suggestion of our scientific board, which includes esteemed academicians, teachers and surgeons. As part of our congress, there will be workshops on subjects including minimally invasive HPB surgery, cadaveric donor harvesting surgery and radiology for surgeons, as well as an HPB training workshop on the first day. The subjects that constitute the main topics of our congress will be discussed by our local and foreign guests in sessions with multidisciplinary approach. For this purpose, we wish to share with you that our colleagues from various disciplines and associations will meet here in our congress. Abstracts will be presented in the form of a poster, an oral presentation and a video abstract. Some of them will receive awards according to the judgement of our Jury.

By holding our congress in Istanbul, we wanted to ease the transportation, accommodation and participation conditions for our colleagues in this environment, where we are exposed to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We hereby request you to note 9-12 September 2021 and to reserve that period for the “15th Turkish HPB Surgical Congress and the 6th HPB Surgical Nursing Congress”.

Hoping to see you at the congress
Best regards,

Associate Prof. Dr. Muharrem Battal
