2nd Annual Prostate Cancer Symposium and Inaugural World Congress of Urologic Oncology

The Department of Urology at the Mount Sinai Health System is hosting its 2nd Annual International Prostate Cancer Symposium and Inaugural World Congress in collaboration with Society of Urologic Robotic Surgeons and Endourological Society. More than 110 renowned faculty from around the world will participate in Live 3D surgical demonstrations, including prostate, kidney and bladder and reconstruction as well as Inaugural Symposiums: Immunotherapy of Prostate Cancer and GU Cancers and World Consortium on Advanced Prostate Cancer. 

Lecture topics will include immunotherapy and tumor microenvironment, active surveillance, focal therapy, advanced prostate cancer, locally advanced disease, radical prostatectomy, morbidity and quality of life.  Participants will also discuss the recent U.S. Services Preventative Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations that encourage men ages 55 to 69 to “make an individualized decision about prostate screening with their clinician.”

This year’s symposium will also recognize the 75th Anniversary of the Milton and Carroll Petrie Department of Urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
