The EAU Section of Genito-Urinary Reconstructive Surgeons

The EAU Section of Genito-Urinary Reconstructive Surgeons (ESGURS) intends to bring senior experts in the field of reconstructive urology and young urologists interested in reconstructive urological surgery in contact with each other. We believe that genitourinary reconstructive surgery proves to be a special challenge in the field of urology.

ESGURS attaches great importance to reconstructive surgery in urology. Therefore, the section supports the establishment and development of endoscopic, laparoscopic, and robot-assisted surgery for reconstructive procedures as modern and minimally invasive options.

ESGURS is also planning multicenter trials on the field of reconstructive surgery in future.

The EAU Section of Andrological Urology

The EAU Section of Andrological Urology (ESAU) aims to reach a broader perspective of what andrology has to offer and increase knowledge through extensive investigation. The ESAU promotes every aspect of clinical andrology, such as basic and clinical research, education, and training.

The ESAU facilitates interaction and close collaboration with the EAA (European Academy of Andrology). The section takes a new direction towards active participation in ongoing European educational programmes. A major objective is to realise a common European educational programme in andrology.

The ESAU provides specialists with the latest expertise in the field of andrology, covering various areas and numerous specialisms such as urology, endocrinology, and sexuology. The section organises regular meetings in addition to the Section Meeting held at the Annual EAU Congress.

The ESAU coordinates a specialist training programme (the Joint European Training Programme) in andrology and sets up joint workshops and training programmes that include all aspects of andrology. In addition, the ESAU promotes collaborative projects among urologists and andrologists, and ibrings together clinical trainees who may have mutual research interests and challenges.

The Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons (GURS)

The Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, educational and literary purposes. The Society will encourage the study of, promote research in, improve the practice of, elevate the standards of, and otherwise advance genitourinary reconstructive surgery. This mission may be accomplished by:

Provision of an interdisciplinary forum which will meet at least yearly for the exchange of ideas, presentation of papers, and discussion of principles and techniques of genitourinary reconstructive surgery.

Encouragement of contributions pertaining to genitourinary reconstructive surgery to the medical and scientific literature.

Such other mechanisms as the Board of Directors may from time to time determine which are within the parameters required by law for the Society to become and remain qualified as a tax exempt entity.

The European Association of Urology

For more than 40 years, the European Association of Urology (EAU) has addressed the most pressing issues of urological care in Europe, through its scientific and educational initiatives, as well as its publications. The EAU delivers training, stimulates research, organises exchanges and broadcasts information. More than 16,000 professionals have joined the EAU and together we create and explore numerous opportunities for professional growth and knowledge-sharing.
