Foreign experts explain ways to avoid trauma in urological surgeries.

HYDERABAD -- Foreign urology experts speaking at a conference emphasised the need for avoiding complications in urological surgeries to save patients from trauma and also save time.

They explained different methodologies for urological surgeries at the first four-day 'Hyderabad Urology Conference' organised by Dr Javed Altaf-led Hyderabad chapter of the Pakistan Association of Urological Surgeons (PAUS) at Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS) on Sunday. The conference was formally inaugurated a day earlier.

Two eminent urologists -- Prof Dr Mahesh Bahadur Adhikari from Nepal and Prof Dr Srinath K. Chandrasekara from Sri Lanka also delivered their lectures, besides their Pakistani counterparts. They performed live surgeries as well.

Welcoming visiting the guests, LUMHS vice chancellor Prof Dr Ikram Din Ujjan said that urology had long been recognised as a keen adopter of new technologies and innovations in surgical practice.

He said that with exponential and rapid perfections in laparoscopic techniques and instrumentations over the last two decades, urologists' enthusiasm to implement minimally invasive approaches had led to near-elimination of open surgical approaches in urological diseases.
