We take great pleasure in inviting you to “Excellence in Laser Urological Surgery”, a live international workshop on laser applications in urology to be held on the April 21-22, 2007 at the Woodlands Medical Centre Ltd., in association with the Academic Unit of the hospital.

Tha application of lasers in urological surgery is not new. However, great refinements in have been made over the last few years in the laser treatment of urological disorders, and in particular, the therapies of benign prostatic hyperplasia and stone disease are being refined. We have felt it important that there be a live demonstration of laser techniques for the benefit of the Indian urologists, and create a forum for discussion of the many nuances of such therapy, and its safety, efficacy, and cost-effectivity in the Indian patient population.

Our chief resource person is Professor Andreas Gross of Hamburg and Gottingen, an expert in the field of endourology, and a pioneer in laser applications for BPH and urololithiasis. He will demonstrate for us, live, his surgical techniques, and take part in the deliberations. He will joined by a faculty of national experts, in this field.

We expect to demonstrate live the main techniques of laser treatments of BPH in comparison with conventional electro resection and emerging bipolar resection of prostate. A section of the workshop will deal with laser lithotripsy, and laser treatment of soft tissue urological problems.
