Join us in Istanbul

The SIU invite you to the 43rd annual Congress to be held in Istanbul, Türkiye October 11 - 14, 2023. SIU 2023, hosted in conjunction with the 32nd Turkish Urological Association meeting, will unite urologists, affiliated healthcare professionals, national and sub-specialty urological societies and industry partners from across the globe, both in person and virtually.

Based on needs assessment activities conducted by the Society, the Scientific Programme Co-Chairs Drs Rajeev T P (India) and Seth Lerner (United States), along with its committee and council members, are developing an exceptional programme for this year’s congress. SIU 2023 education sessions are led by world-renowned healthcare and innovative thought leaders and explore prevalent issues and challenges in the field of urology. We look forward to revealing the cutting-edge programme featuring a live surgery course (Thursday, October 12), workshops, accredited symposia, lectures, master classes and much more.

In addition, the congress will feature the SIU’s 5th Bench-to-Bedside Uro-Oncology: GU Cancers Triad Meeting on Friday, October 13. This distinguished annual meeting is your opportunity to hear leading experts present the latest advances in the management of bladder, kidney, and prostate cancers through multidisciplinary presentations, debates, and case-based panel discussions.
