Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Endourological Society, it is a great pleasure to warmly invite you to attend the 29th World Congress of Videourology and Advances in Clinical Urology to be held in the beautiful city of Moscow, Russia. This year’s program includes world renown international and local faculty with practical information to greatly enhance your practice of most common urologic conditions. High quality videos and panel discussions will be interactive with audience participation.
This year’s Congress will feature live surgeries and unedited video sessions, expert video sessions, panel discussions and debates. In addition, hands-on skills training courses will supplement the knowledge obtained from the video sessions. You have the unique opportunity to submit your videos and abstracts to showcase your research and innovative technique and management approach. This year we are particularly interested in receiving videos highlighting complications and how you handled them. The top 10 best videos selected by the review committee will be published in Journal of Videourology, the online peer reviewed video journal associated with the Journal of Endourology and the Endourological Society.
Moscow is a beautiful city, uniquely located in the intersection Eastern European and Asian countries, enabling access by dozens of direct flights from North and South America, Europe and Asia. Social events and optional tours will further greatly enhance your experience at the congress.
I look forward to seeing you in Moscow.
Arthur Smith, MD
The Founding President
As the President of the 29th World Congress on Video Urology and Advances in Clinical Urology, I am honored to invite you to Moscow on October 5-7, 2018. For the first time the Endourology Societyhas entrusted their Russian colleagues with the organization of the World Congress, thus confirming the growing reputation of the Russian medical community.
The leading experts from all over the world will gather in Russia for the first time to discuss the ways to achieve the highest results in the treatment of urological diseases. Young doctors will be able not only to gain unique knowledge and skills, but also to present the results of their own scientific research.
During the congress we will discuss issues related to reconstructive urology, as well as endoscopic, laparoscopic and robotic tactical approaches to treating patients with genitourinary system disorders.
The participants will be able to review and discuss dozens of standard and non-typical surgeries, listen to lecturers and have discussions with experts, and improve their surgical techniques.
I am confident that the Congress on Video Urology will become one of the most important industry events in Russia and around the world. And it will not only fulfill the intended mission - to strengthen and refinepractical skills in surgical urology, but it will also serve as an impetus for new scientific research and further productivework.
We invite you to share the results of your scientific research with your colleagues and to participate in the work of the 2018 Congress.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
