Session

Robot renal surgery

ESU Course 35

  • Location:
    Room 21 (ICM, Level 2)
  • Chair:
     A. Mottrie, Aalst (BE)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    This course will cover all principal indications for robotic surgery of the upper urinary tract. The standard techniques will be explained on a video-based fashion and will be followed by discussing advanced cases as well as troubleshooting and complication management. On top of that, technical innovations and new applications will be discussed as well.
