AUA Segura International Urolithiasis Course Inaugurated at MPUH - CRS Nadiad
MPUH – CRS Nadiad (India) organizes 'American Urological Association (AUA) Segura International Urolithiasis Course' - Feb 21-23, 2013.
The Seminar was inaugurated on 21st Feb by the Chairman of MPUH, Shri Rohit J Patel in the presence of ‘who-is-who’
MPUH is ‘complete’
India has more stone cases than in any other country. With the advancement of technology and new techniques in management of stone diseases, patients will be the ultimate beneficiaries. We are looking at treatment modalities that can remove stones without surgery. For the last ten years, not a single open stone surgery has been done at MPUH. We propose to set up a Centre at MPUH for Research in stone disease. Dr. Jens Rassweiler and his daughter Dr Marie Claire from Germany demonstrated, for the first time outside Germany, a new technique ‘iPad guided renal access’ for clearance of stones. This technique may however take some more time for perfection.
This type of Conference provides great opportunities for the young and upcoming Urologists to learn from experts in the field and apprise themselves of the latest developments in the field of urology. During the conference, more than 20 surgical procedures are being telecast LIVE from the operation theatres to the Conference venue for the benefit of delegates. The participants can ask any questions directly to the operating surgeons to clear any doubts. They also have facilities for hands-on training on simulators and models in the JPAC labs. Many world renowned medical equipment manufacturers have set up their stalls at the Conference venue. The Conference was a grand success.
