The 33rd Meeting of the Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery will be held at the Osaka International Convention Center (Grand Cube) from June 2 (Wednesday) to June 3 (Thursday), 2021, a quarter century after the 8th Meeting hosted by my mentor, Prof. Hiroaki Kinoshita. It is my honor to preside over this eminent society with its excellent history and inspiring spirit. The entire staffs of the Department of Surgery, Osaka City University, is proud of and grateful to all the members of the society.
The Japanese Society of hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery has made remarkable strides in the field of hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery by inheritance of tradition, academic research, and communication with other congresses. This progress has been a result of the efforts made by senior doctors and members of the congress. I hope to record another successful chapter in the history of the society.
The Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery educate and nurtures board-certificated instructors and expert surgeons and enhances the safety management for high-level hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgeries. The society also produce numerous guidelines with newly discovered evidence from research projects. These efforts greatly contribute progress in surgery.
Currently, the world is experiencing serious problems on account of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Therefore, we must advance surgery to life sciences by understanding the principles of life, pathophysiology of disease and biological reaction, and by improvements of surgical techniques and instruments.
The core concept of Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine is centered on the three primary virtues of wisdom, benevolence, and valor. The wise have no delusion, the benevolent have no worry, and those with valor have no fear. The bioethics with this concept are important to approach life sciences. I hope that the meeting will result in innovations based on bioethics and life sciences by experts in the field of hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery, bearing in mind the abovementioned virtues.
Please join us to discuss the present and the future of hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery.
