CHIMES vzw Gent and Junior Orsi joined forces this year and came up with a new concept: The Pediatric Urology Week.
For the benefit the Gianni Eggermont Fund we organised a full week of workshops, lectures and testimonies on the theme of ‘pediatric and reconstructive urology’.
We are proud to give €1500 to the Gianni Eggermont Fund.
The weekplanning was as follows:
*Monday 22/11:Welcome reception, introduction of the week and the Gianni Eggermont fund at Ghent University Hospital.
*Tuesday 23/11:The traditional suturing workshop, organised by Chimes Gent at Ghent University Hospital (UZ Gent).
*Wednesday 24/11:Videosurgery with live commentary by Prof. Dr. Spinoit at Ghent UZ.
*Thursday 25/11:Hands-on workshop urological skills (cytoscopy, ultrasound & sondage) at UZ Gent.
*Saturday 27/11:Full day at Orsi Academy
We started with a panel discussion about the ethical aspects of reconstructive surgery with prof. dr. Anne-Françoise Spinoit, prof. dr. Piet Hoebeke, Eline Maesschalck Cornand, dr. Pieter Cannoot, and dr. Geert De Naeyer.
We continued the day with minimally invasive surgery workshops:
– Robotic surgery workshop I: Chicken anastomosis
– Laparoscopic Workshop I: Laparoscopic knotting
– Laparoscopic Workshop II: Pyeloplasty
Thanks to dr. Mieke Waterschoot, dr. Charles Van Praet, dr. Camille Berquin, dr. Van Parys and dr. Caroline Jamaer for guiding the workshops.
