We’re Recognizing ESWL Application Specialists Around the World – Win a Trip to Munich!

February 7, 2019

In commemoration of the very first Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) procedure performed on 7 February 1980, Dornier MedTech (Dornier) has announced a global competition to honour ESWL Application Specialists around the world.

Many people have heard of the urologist, or even the nurse – but few know or understand the important role of ESWL Application Specialists. Their skills are fundamental to the success of every ESWL treatment procedure, ensuring that patients can continue to go about their daily lives as soon as the next day after a successful treatment for kidney or urinary stones.

Dornier’s competition has been launched to inspire and shine a light on the knowledge, skills and contributions ESWL Application Specialists make to treating kidney and urinary stones on a daily basis. The competition seeks to bring out the life-changing and heart-warming stories of how ESWL Application Specialists have made a difference to the lives of patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

The contest will launch on 7 February 2019, which has also been announced as World ESWL Day, to honour the life and work of the many who have been involved with ESWL since its inception in 1980. To participate, applicants will have to either submit their best ESWL pro tip or the most interesting story they had with an ESWL patient in LinkedIn by tagging @DornierMedTech and using #ProudToESWL or email to

Three winners will be chosen based on their entry and win an all-expenses trip to Dornier MedTech’s Headquarters in Munich, Germany, where they will visit the original Dornier manufacturing facility and heritage museum, interact and engage with key physicians and collaborators from Dornier MedTech to help shape the next generation of ESWL products, and tour the city of Munich.

Interested participants can visit the Dornier MedTech LinkedIn page at to participate in the contest!
