Development of new devices and instrumentation is continuously stimulating modern surgical practice. Technological renovation is driving the evolution of minimally invasive urologic surgery, especially in tertiary care centres. Conventional laparoscopy has represented a paradigm shift in urologic surgery over the last twenty years but the introduction of robotics and other novel technologies has driven another revolution, moving us into the next level of evolution of minimally invasive surgery: the “technological surgery”.
In the previous first edition of this Meeting we tried to put the basis about the new point of view of modern urologic surgery. Techno Urology Congress has been thought in order to offer the participants a punctual resign of modern technological innovations available in urology, trying to draw comparisons among them, looking for a new standard. With the second edition we would like to show the most recent technological innovations introduced during the last year and we would like to put the accent over live surgery.
The scientific program will include a stimulating combination of live surgery sessions, lectures and thought-provoking debates featuring the world’s experts in the field. Key topics will be covered during this 2-days event, such as Image-guided Surgery, Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site Surgery (LESS), Standard and LESS-assisted Robotic surgery, Mini-laparoscopy, 3D Laparoscopy. We are confident that the second edition of the meeting will give the attendees the opportunity of experience the available innovative techniques and technologies. We hope the meeting we have organized will be great either for urologists who participate to the first edition and new comers.
We look forward to seeing you in Torino.
