International Hepato Pancreato Biliary Association (IHPBA)

Prof Lodge has been invited to speak at the next World Congress of the International Hepato Pancreato Biliary Association (IHPBA) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, April 20-23, 2016. He is a key member of the teaching faculty for this prestigious meeting, where the world’s most prominent HPB surgeons will gather to exchange ideas and promote research into new methods for dealing with liver cancer and other important disorders. Prof Lodge’s task is to discuss how surgeons can advance their knowledge about surgery for tumours involving not only the liver but also the inferior vena cava, the largest blood vessel in the body. Prof Lodge is recognised as one of only a handful of surgeons worldwide who are able to do this difficult surgery successfully.
