Our expert panel of urologists from New York, Indiana and California discussed various aspects of the “new normal” in urology; from how practices in their hospitals have had to adapt to changes almost daily, to the rise of telemedicine and the increased focus on technology to provide value-based healthcare.

Our first “COVID-19 Spotlight on Urology” webinar was attended by 496 participants! Expert urologists from COVID-19 hotspots like China, Italy, Spain and Turkey, discussed how the virus has affected the practice of urology in their countries. They shared war stories of how some of their hospitals were converted to treat COVID-19 patients, and how their personal urology practices were affected by the changes. On the management of urology patients on their long waiting lists, they felt that non-invasive stone treatment options had a role to play, in addition to other minimally invasive stone procedures – depending on local guidelines.
