ESGURS-ESPU 2014

Welcome

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We invite you to the 1st Joint Meeting of  ESGURS and ESPU which will be held in Ghent, Belgium from 21 to 22 November, 2014.

With the challenges faced by specialists and urologists in offering optimal treatment to patients with genito-urinary diseases, we saw the need to organise a meeting that will closely examine options in the surgical management of hypospadias, urethral strictures and genital dysmorphia among adult, adolescent and paediatric patients.

The scientific programme will take up a range of issues in genital reconstructive surgery and will provide a unique opportunity for specialised updates by harnessing the synergies of two frontline groups, the ESGURS and ESPU.

Five live surgical sessions will be held, composed of a dozen surgical procedures and demonstrating the latest methods in urethroplasty, phallic reconstruction, prosthesis implants, penile grafting and corrective techniques. Complementing the live surgeries are state-of-art lectures, panel discussions, symposiums and poster sessions.
   
With Ghent as host city, participants will experience one of Belgium’s treasured cities and have a glimpse of its mediaeval heritage, cosmopolitan ambience and vibrant cultural life.  

We look forward to see you in Ghent!
