In 2016, the 13th meeting of the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) will take place from September 14-16 in Milan, Italy. In an era of incessant technologic improvements, the ERUS meeting represents one of the best opportunities to get up to date with the latest advances in the field of robotic surgery and to directly interact with top experts coming from all around the world. This meeting is specifically aimed at educating on the latest evolutions in terms of robotic surgery, with the final goal of raising the level of patient care.
The upcoming ERUS meeting will include more than ten robot-assisted live surgeries performed by well-recognized experts in the field. In particular, these sessions will focus on the most common urologic procedures, as well as on special indications and rare pathologies. The 2016 ERUS meeting will also benefit from the introduction of semi-live surgical sessions, where experienced surgeons will have the opportunity to describe their surgical technique and their tips and tricks in detail, in a step-by-step fashion using edited videos. Another element of novelty is represented by the implementation of sessions that will focus on how to perform non-urological procedures robotically. This will include typical scenarios of everyday surgical practice that might occur during urologic minimally invasive surgery. Participants will also be able to get in touch with novel robotic systems that will be introduced in the clinical practice in the near future.
The educational aspect of the congress will benefit from courses held by the European School of Urology and from the possibility to participate to several hands-on-training sessions. The ERUS meeting will also describe and analyze the latest findings in terms of diagnostic and therapeutic advances in the management of patients with urologic diseases. Finally, there will be the opportunity to submit abstracts and videos, where the best ones will be selected for discussion during the plenary session of the meeting.
We can’t wait to welcome you in Milan from September 14-16 at the ERUS annual meeting!
