Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (LEP) is an established alternative to traditional Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) and open prostatectomy. This full-day course will focus on LEP techniques, instrumentation, current lasers used, and intravesical soft-tissue retrieving devices. This specific endourologic technique of the Lower Urinary Tract (LUT) is of particular relevance to practicing urologists.
The course uniquely combines didactic material and live-case demonstrations to provide interested urologists with a comprehensive learning experience. The course features two didactic presentations (Current Lasers used in the Lower Urinary Tract, Laser Enucleation of the Prostate: Instruments and Technique) on Day 1, followed by a full day of observation of LEP procedures with the opportunity to discuss the cases with the faculty performing the procedures.

There is no registration fee for this course. However, pre-registration is required, and registration is limited to 4 individuals.
All registrants are required to provide the following documentation 1 week prior to the start of the session. If items are not received your registration will be cancelled.
