Stating that the Annual Meeting was held in San Diego city of California in the first week of May, Atug said that nearly 20 thousand urologists attended this year’s Annual Meeting of the AUA, being the largest gathering of urologists in the world.
Atug further said:
“The Annual Meeting of the AUA, which is organized only in the United States, is recognized as the most prestigious urological gathering in the world. One of the courses in this year’s congress was the ‘Robotic Prostate Cancer Surgery’ course. I attended this course as an instructor and a speaker. As far as we know, I have been the first surgeon to be invited to this course as an instructor from Turkey. The pioneers of this field in the world are American surgeons. It is a source of pride for our country that a Turkish physician has been invited to the United States, the most developed country, to provide training on robotic surgery. Usually, American doctors come to our country to provide trainings; we could say, this time, it has been the other way around.”

Prof. Dr. Atug is a member of the scientific advisory committee to the Journal of Endourology published by the Endourological Society, one of the most significant scientific journals in the field of urology in the world.
