Location: MCC WEST, 2010

The surgical management of urolithiasis represents a significant portion of operative urologic practice today. This course offers the practicing urologist a comprehensive, case-based review of the surgical management of urolithiasis. Leading experts in the field will present the latest techniques and innovations in percutaneous renal surgery, ureteroscopy and shock wave lithotripsy. Next, optimal treatments for renal and ureteral stones will be shared based on the latest American Urological Association (AUA) guidelines for staghorn and ureteral stones via a series of illustrative cases selected to enable the participant to "put it all together". This final session will no doubt spark lively interaction between all the course faculty and attendees. Special attention will be paid throughout the course to the prevention of complications.
