Welcome to
CUHK Urology Week

On behalf of the S.H. Ho Urology Centre, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, we would like to extend our warmest welcome to all of you in joining the Urology Symposium 2020.

This is a very special year for all of us. In fact, since our last symposium, Hong Kong has already experienced many turbulances. Since the beginning of 2020, COVID-19 has changed the whole world and our life completely. The uncertainties of COVID-19, together with the disturbances in daily work, academic activities and family life, have drained our heart and mind. Many of us probably had gone through period of worry, depression, anger and frustration. Fortunately, the situation seem to be stable a bit in Hong Kong and our life has graduately adapted to this new routine.

On the other hand, the quest in pursuit of improvement of our patients’ care has never ceased. We continue to strive to improve our patient outcomes and minimize the complications in management. The introduction of better imaging systems and better energy platforms have opened new gates in minimally invasive surgery, such as focal therapy for patients with prostate, thulium fiber laser etc. Even for the most common urological problem, benign prostate hyperplasia, there is now a running list of new devices, including Urolift®, Rezum® etc. Not to mention the rapid development in systemic therapy for urothelial cancer, prostate cancer etc.

In light of these advancements, the theme of this year’s symposium is Advancement in Urology in Turbulent Times of the World. We believed despite the difficulties and uncertainlties we faced now, life still goes on and our duties to our patients are still here. Therefore, we need to keep ourselves update on the latest development in order to provide our patients the best care. As usual, we have gathered a team of top leaders in the field to share with us their insight and experience in the latest development in various urological topics. We hope our meeting would provide a good summary for the latest urological development in 2020.

On-line platform for knowledge transfer has become the new standard now. Besides adopting this approach, we have also modifited our program to a week of short lecture series to fit the busy schedule of us. Hopefully, the changes will facilitate your participation and will not cause extra-burden to your life.

The success of our symposium certainly relies not only on our team, but also heavily on the enthusiastic support from the executive team and, equally important the industries. We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to the undivided support of all of you, particularly through this current difficult time in Hong Kong and the world. We sincerely wish you an enjoyable meeting and safe and wonderful time in Hong Kong.

With Best Wishes,

Anthony CF NG
