Retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) performed using a flexible ureteroscope marked the beginning of a new era in urology. RIRS renders smaller kidney stones more accessible and upper urinary tract tumors treatable, using minimally invasive methods.

In this two day course, training on simulators will be conducted to help trainees get a grasp of the equipment used in upper tract such as Flexible Ureteroscopes.
