SIDRA Medicine announced on Tuesday that it will hold its first international workshop on reconstructive paediatric urology on October 30-31, 2019.
The workshop will be held at the Qatar National Convention Center (QNCC) with separate sessions at Sidra Medicine, and serve as a precursor to the 6th World Congress of Pediatric Surgery (WOFAPS 2019) conference which will run from November 1 to 3, 2019.
The urology workshop will feature live surgery updates and interactive discussions with a panel of internationally renowned urologists. One of the new features of the workshop will allow attendees to view a live surgery from the Sidra Medicine operating room while seated at the Sidra Medicine auditorium.
Prof Pippi Salle, Division chief of Urology at Sidra Medicine and chair of the workshop organising committee, said, “The Urology live surgery workshop is an exciting feature as not only is it important from an educational perspective, but it is a great opportunity to showcase the advancements in paediatric urology that we have achieved at Sidra Medicine. Our paediatric subspecialty is now exclusively at Sidra Medicine for all children and deals with all types of genito-urinary abnormalities requiring surgery.”
WOFAPS 2019 will include a comprehensive discussion of the ‘classical’ challenges in general and urological paediatric surgery. Newsworthy research, surgical techniques and challenges facing the care of children in high and low income countries will frame each interactive learning session. The topic of sub-specialties of urology will continue throughout the duration of WOFAPS, with three full day urology sessions during the congress.
“We are also pleased that the workshop is part of WOFAPS 2019, which will be the country’s largest ever gathering of paediatric surgeons from around the world. This provides an extended platform for us to review and highlight the advancements as well as the challenges that need to be addressed in reconstructive urology in children. I look forward to welcoming students and surgical peers from around the globe to our workshop,” Prof Salle continued.
