Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure to welcome you again to Barcelona for the European Meeting on Laparoscopic and Robotic Urologic Surgery.
“Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics” has reached the 16th edition and the concept that initiated this adventure is quite alive and shows great potential for the future of Urology. The comprehensive scientific program will include live laparoscopic and robotic surgeries performed by the world’s most prominent urologic surgeons. In the past meetings, we have witnessed many challenging procedures. It is now time to expand our indications and to look forward to new challenges like the Single port trans-perineal prostatectomy, the robotic kidney transplantation in the obese recipient, the buccal mucosal repair for ureteral strictures, the Cava Thrombus in RCC, the retroperitoneal Robotic Partial Nephrectomy and the Image1 S.
We are enthusiastically anticipating an extremely stimulating meeting. Live surgery, discussions and thought-provoking debates will take place with the participation of the best urologists in the International arena. There will be three monitors transmitting three different surgeries at the same time. Each delegate will be provided with headphones with the possibility to select the preferred moderation.
All questions will be transmitted to the moderators via Twitter or directly via moderators. We are very proud to host this 16th International Meeting again in Barcelona, the perfect city for old antiquities and innovative techniques to convene. All the surgeries will be transmitted live from Fundació Puigvert, one of Europe’s leading centers in Urology.
We hope that the challenging procedures that you will see will lead the way towards defining the future of Urologic Surgery.
