New trends and future directions on reconstructive urologic surgery

19 de February de 2017

The sixth session of the Programme Valdecilla Progress Reports will take place on the 22nd of February. The conference will be given by Félix Campos Juanatey, Specialist in Pneumology at Marques de Valdecilla University Hospital, Ex-contract Wenceslao López Albo.

The session will be about “New trends and future directions on reconstructive urologic surgery” and is briefly summarized below:

Reconstructive surgery is one of the less known sub-specialities of Urology. Its scope includes urethral stricture repairs, male genital reconstructive interventions, urinary diversion formation and treatment of urinary fistulae and incontinence. The number of patients is relatively low, but the complexity of their treatment requires a tailored approach, mastering several surgical techniques. In our unit at HUMV we are devoted to these pathology, using innovative techniques, and applying the last knowledge to achieve the best outcomes. This talk will review our current approaches to the reconstructive surgery, with the newer surgical interventions performed. Our current studies will be explained, detailing our formative program for other professionals and trainees. A brief overlook to the future of our field will end the session.   

This programme of seminars is given by young researchers on the field of IDIVAL’s clinic and laboratories. The speakers will explain the scientific advances of their current research projects. With the idea of debating and networking, the main goal of these meetings, all the predoctoral contracts, Post-MIR Valdecilla López Albo researchers, Río Hortega and Inn-Val grants are invited to attend to the sessions as part of their training. 

The meeting will take place at Marquesa de Pelayo Library’s informatics room at 2.30pm, pavilion 16 of the HUMV (2nd floor). The lecture room has a capacity of 30 people.

Researchers who attend 80% of the meetings throughout the academic year will receive a certificate of assistance.
