Advanced video-based interactive ERUS-ESU Masterclass on Robotic-Assisted Radical Cystoprostatectomy

Friday and Saturday 8-9 February 2013 – Fundació Puigvert, Barcelona - Spain

The European Robotic Urology Section of the EAU provides masterclasess in robotic surgery. Last year the robotic cystoprostatectomy course chaired by Joan Palou was a well attended intensive practical course for more experienced robotic surgeons. Presentations on patient selection and surgical technique enable robotic surgeons to either set the first steps into the field or improve on their methods.
