After a very successful launch of our 1st ESD - Experts in Stone Disease meeting in Dubai in December 2012, we are now ready to welcome you to our 2nd ESD Conference in beautiful Cape Town from the 10th to the 13th December 2014.

T
hanks to the support of many urological and “stone” societies, we have been able to put together an exciting programme, which will address all aspects of stone disease from molecule to staghorn, from crystal to rock, from diet to surgery. This unique multidisciplinary platform unites all stakeholders in stone disease from researchers, physicians and dieticians to surgeons, not to forget the manufacturers of all tools and drugs that are so essential in our daily stone business.

There will be a multitude of keynote lectures delivered by an internationally renowned Faculty, unedited live-commented interactive video demonstration of the latest surgical techniques, andintensive Hands-on workshops on PCNL, URS, stenting, ESWL, and metabolic stone disease. Delegates will have the opportunity to present their own work in several poster and video sessions chaired by eminent experts in the field.

Excitingly, we are also launching two new initiatives in Urology and for urologists. Saturday 13th of December 2014 will see the official launch of the EAMD - Experts in Ageing Male Disease, with an inaugural symposium covering many aspect of the ageing male from erectile dysfunction, lower urinary tract symptoms, metabolic syndrome and lifestyle, to prostate and penile cancer prevalent to that age group. International experts have been invited to deliver state-of-the art lectures. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in a unique half-day course that will teach you as a busy professional how to cope with stress and find the right work-life balance. In such way relaxed, you will be able to enjoy the delights of one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the southern hemisphere.

We are warm-heartedly extending our welcome to you and hope that you will join us in Cape Town for a stimulating Conference, a friendly gathering amongst friends, and simply a good time.
