Registration is now open for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Masterclass on Bladder Cancer, taking place from 1-2 May 2019 in Buffalo, New York. The two-day course will feature live Radical Cystectomy and Intracorporeal Urinary Diversion with guideline-based patient scenarios.

This masterclass is designed for urologists and urology trainees to advance their understanding of clinical bladder cancer management. This includes technical tips and tricks for robot-assisted radical cystectomy from experts in the field, as well as different techniques for intra-corporal urinary diversion and non-surgical treatments.

During these two days, attendees will explore the role of immunotherapy in bladder cancer treatment, the role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, how to deal with challenging variations in histology, proper perioperative preparation for best outcomes, techniques of cystectomy and intracorporal urinary diversion, principles of uretero-ileal and urethra-neobladder anastomosis, and the best ways to deal with intraoperative complications. Participants will also learn from watching a live surgery with commentary and open discussion.

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center hopes attendees will leave this course with a deeper understanding of the best and future treatments for bladder cancer, as well as the best practices for successful robot-assisted cystectomy and intra-corporal urinary diversion. The center also hopes that the information learned from its expert speakers will enhance guests’ understanding of bladder cancer management, improve surgical performance, expose guests to new perspectives, and increase positive outcomes in clinical practice.
