On behalf of the Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons (GURS) Board and the Local Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure to invite you to the 1st GURS Eastern European Symposium, that will take place in Skopje, Macedonia, from June 1st to June 3rd, 2017.
Inspired by popularization of genital reconstructive surgery and expansion of interest in this area of expertise among residents and young urologists all around the world, we strive to spread and promote the latest challenges and improvements in reconstructive urology. We put together an exciting schedule of events for this symposium, including lectures, live surgeries, debates, a multitude of videos and programs in many areas of genitourinary reconstructive surgery: Peyronie's disease, erectile dysfunction, male urinary incontinence, urethral reconstruction. The 1st GURS Eastern European Symposium features faculty of six leading experts delivering live surgery workshops and lectures, covering all current topics in this field.
We are convinced that GURS Symposium in Skopje will reflect the mission and vision of GURS: provision of an interdisciplinary forum which will meet for the exchange of ideas and discussion of principles and techniques of genitourinary reconstructive surgery; and encouragement of contributions pertaining to genitourinary reconstructive surgery to the medical and scientific literature.
Skopje is the political, economic and cultural center of Macedonia, with population around 800000 people. The city is located on the upper course of the Vardar River, on a major north-south Balkan route between Belgrade and Athens. The territory of Skopje has been inhabited since at least 4000 BC, and its' rich turbulent history, combined with delicious food and famous wines, is breathtaking.
Two well known institutions, Belgrade Center for Genital Reconstructive Surgery and Acibadem Sistina Hospital, formed the Local Organizing Committee in order to make the importance of the meeting evident to the public, as well as scientific and health-care authorities, and make it a successful one.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Skopje and make a great Symposium together!
