Maximum of 13.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Directed by Ralph V. Clayman, MD and Jaime Landman, MD, this newly enhanced course will feature a combination of didactic lectures, surgical video cases, panel discussions, Q & A sessions, an interactive review using audience response and hands-on surgical skill stations that allow each participant to perform percutaneous stone removal from start to finish on human cadavers for more accurate training.
Due to increased demand we have increased the capacity of the didactic sessions ONLY. You will not be permitted to participate in the hands-on sessions on Saturday afternoon, but you can attend all lectures and case discussions on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Meals are included as stated on the agenda. Please see the Scientific Program Schedule drop down below for more details. The American Urological Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 9.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

This two day course with didactic and hands-on sessions is designed for urologists and residents.
Because of the relative paucity of PCNL cases in training programs which are not high-volume centers, many residents do not gain enough practical experience to feel comfortable with obtaining percutaneous access and performing PCNL. Concerns over morbidity of the operation due to a lack of familiarity and ability to troubleshoot challenges or complications may lead surgeons to avoiding PCNL when it is the ideal surgical approach to a stone. Making the “rare” case into a “routine” one by enabling hands-on experience in all phases of the surgery will address the gap in practice, allowing more urologists to offer PCNL to their patients.
