Pediatric Urology is defined as the subspecialty of both Urology and Pediatric Surgery concerned with clinical recognition, prevention, treatment (surgical and non-surgical), and the rehabilitation of congenital and acquired diseases, malformations and functional problems of the genitourinary system in children and adolescents. Over the years Pediatric Urology has un-officially developed, expanded, matured and established its diverse body of knowledge and proficiency. Some procedures performed today are so demanding that they should only be performed in Centres where this sub-specialist knowledge and skill has been accumulated and well developed. This Symposium concentrating on “Innovative Strategies in Pediatric Urology” is bringing together among the best leading experts in this field from all over the world for three days of intense and productive work aiming at an appropriate update. This is a unique opportunity and we are looking forward to welcoming you in Bologna.
