About the Southern African Endourology Society
The inaugural meeting of the Southern African Endourology Society was held at the Urological Association of South Africa congress in the Drakensburg in August 2008. The meeting was addressed by Prof Arthur Smith (founder of the world Endourological Society) and Dr Jaime Landman, one of the foremost minimally invasive urological surgeons in the world. Southern African and International delegates attended the launch, which signified a new commitment in the region to minimally invasive surgery in Urology.
