Scientific Programme ERUS

The ERUS meeting is the premier European robotic live-urological surgery meeting. The meeting provides practical teaching for daily urological practice. Theoretical updates on clinical practice are combined with two days of live-surgery.

During the meeting the attendee will:

  • Be updated on surgical improvements in the most common robotic surgical procedures through special teaching courses
  • Have the opportunity to discuss and present results with the experts
  • Be able to follow the surgical procedures in a step-by-step fashion during live-surgery including direct interaction with the surgeon
  • Learn the latest developments in equipment and material improvement
  • Have a full update on novel robotic systems on the market
  • Learn surgical tips and tricks from the experts

The meeting will be held on 16-17 September.

Scientific programme Junior ERUS-Young Academic Urologists

The Junior ERUS-YAU meeting takes place on 15 September and will consist of the following three sessions:

Session 1: Hot topics in robotic surgery
The first session provides a comprehensive overview of contemporary topics, with special attention for topics that would interest young urologists. The latest techniques will be discussed, along with trial results and educational programmes that are available for those interested in robotic urology.

Session 2: Practical session
A session with instructional and practical video demonstrations. Subjects are once again geared toward beginners, with plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions from the audience.

Session 3: Literature review
A scientific review that looks at the latest publications on the topic of robotic surgery in urology. Most important topics will be covered, looking at emerging evidence of this developing field.
