After the first successful edition, we are happy to announce that the Meeting “Surgery in the Third
Millennium: the Future is female” will be held in Milan on April 4th and 5th 2019. Urology was dominated by male physicians until the last few years, now things seem to have changed, female surgeons are approaching more and more to this field with excellent results.
Still it is not enough and there is a lot to do. That is the reason why this event aims to give the space
female surgeons deserve.Two days of laparoscopic, robotic and endourological live surgeries performed by Italian and foreign female surgeons only.
Women have increased in numbers among urological departments in hospitals, universities and urological associations and will probably be on equal terms with men in the next few years.
I am sure that since today’s surgery means taking care and being passionate, you do not need physical
strength but accuracy and skills. Precision wins on speed and women naturally do have these qualities.
Our department trains mini invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgeons and has excellent female surgeons who already prove themselves nationally and internationally. Italian and foreign female surgeons will perform together and the event is open to all who want to improve their techniques or enhance their abilities on urological surgery.
See you in Milan!
Augmented reality and beyond
Over the last decade we have witnessed the evolution of laparoscopic
techniques with the implementation of robot-assisted surgery and other novel
technologies and instruments. Imaging has evolved together with the surgical
technologies and CT / RM – based 3D reconstructions have become one of the
key point for precision surgery.
With the present seventh edition the TUM aims to highlight how the road from
“cognitive” procedures to augmented reality is leading us toward a next level
The scientific program of this 3-days event will include an exciting combination
of live surgery sessions, lectures and thought-provoking debates featuring the
world’s experts in the field.
Key topics will be discussed with a focus on recent groundbreaking updates in
urologic oncology during the first day, live surgery sessions featuring advanced
procedure in laparoscopic, robot-assisted and image-guided surgery.
The pure laparoscopic cases will be performed with the 4K IMAGE1 S from KARL
STORZ and broadcast to the auditorium by a full 4K transmission.
Each delegate will be given the opportunity to experience the amazing 4K
quality of view, without missing any anatomical details and make the most of
the live surgery session.
For this reason, we are confident that this edition of the TUM will be, once again,
a unique opportunity of “tasting” the latest advancements and innovations in
urologic surgery. We would like to welcome those who have decided to come
back after joining us during the previous editions, and those who are new to
We look forward to seeing you in Turin!
