Optimising clinical pathways with robotic surgery

Welcome to the 15th Meeting of the EAU Robotic Urology Section! The ERUS meeting is the scientific platform for every urologist interested in the latest technical developments and the continuous progress of urological science and practice.

In 2018, the annual EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) meeting is coming to France!

The 15th edition of the ERUS meeting will take place from 5-7 September 2018. The meeting will have a Junior ERUS-YAU programme, combined with ESU courses on September 5th.

ERUS18 is the go-to meeting for every urologist interested in the latest technical developments in robotic surgery and the continuous progress of urological science and practice. The meeting’s aim is to educate the urological community on robotic surgical techniques with the ultimate goal of improving the level of patient care.

The meeting will feature high-quality robotic surgery by experts from all over the world, with interactive moderation. The focus of the meeting will be on practical instructions on robotic surgery with live-surgery sessions, courses by the European School of Urology and hands-on training sessions. The highly interactive format of the meeting invites fruitful discussions. A technical exhibition will be held jointly with the meeting, where manufacturers will be showcasing the latest breakthroughs.
