Welcome to the 20th Annual National Conference of Indian Chapter of IHPBA

Dear HPB colleagues,

Warm regards from Puducherry

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 20th National Conference of the Indian Chapter of the IHPBA in the beautiful city of Puducherry between the 5th and 7th of April 2024. The Conference will be held at the new, extravagant convention hall in Suganya Convention Centre, Puducherry. We will have a galaxy of national and international HPB surgeons to discuss and debate issues related to HPB surgery and Liver Transplantation.

Puducherry is also known as ‘India’s Little France’ or the ‘French Riviera of the East’. The old city is unique with regards to its skillful planning and its Franco-Tamil architecture. It is built on the model of the ‘bastide ’, a fortified French coastal town of the late 18th century. Besides it’s rich culture, Puducherry is a medical hub containing eight medical training institutions.

We look forward to hosting you in Puducherry to experience the city and update your HPB knowledge and skills in the company of experts in the field.
