Dear Colleagues and Friends:
It is my honor and pleasure, as the President of the Endourological Society, to warmly invite you to attend the 35th World Congress of Endourology in 2017 (WCE2017) to be held in the beautiful city of Vancouver.
The mission of our Society is to foster innovation and the spread of minimally invasive urology worldwide. The annual meeting is the central, core event to realize our mission. Our colleagues Drs. Ben Chew, Ken Pace, Hassan Razvi and Dr. Dirk Lange are well on their way to completing a spectacular congress program under the theme of “A Bridge to the Future of Endourology”.
I believe that WCE 2017 in Vancouver will be a great opportunity to gather leaders in endourology as well as all urologists interested in learning more about endourology, to our congress for one great week. The WCE is the premier meeting in the world for Endourology. The World Endo Initiative of the Society will also contribute to assisting attendees from those countries. Our goal is to have over 2000 urologists from over 100 countries.
I look forward to seeing you all in Vancouver, and to learn about the latest progress of minimally invasive urology. We will also enjoy all of the wonderful sights and sounds of Vancouver, while enjoying each other’s company in an inspired setting.
Stephen Y. Nakada, M.D., FACS
