Welcome Urological Surgical Training Program
Shu-Tien Surgical Training Center (STSTC), well equipped with endoscopic equipment,
surgical microscopy, advanced videoaudio teaching facilities, surgical simulator and
hand-on animal laboratory proudly launches a regular training program after 2007.
This program initially covers the field of endourology and urological laparoscopy. All
attendants will learn cutting edge technique and knowledge regarding the latest
advances in this field, and will be immersed in hand-on surgical scenario. All attendants
will have the opportunity to perform complex laparoscopic skill or microscopic surgical
technique under the tutoring of an experienced mentor in dry laboratory and living
animal in STSTC. Live demonstration on a variety of urological laparoscopic
procedures, including laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, laparoscopic radical
cystectomy, laparoscopic partial nephrectomy etc. will be shown by telecommunication
from Taipei City Hospital to STSTC. Real time, to and fro discussion during the
operation between the audience and the operator will be shown and moderated by
another experienced surgeon.
The location of STSTC is close to the most famous resort area of Taipei, National
Yang-Ming National Park, where you can easily find a hot spring hotel or a wonderful
cuisine serving delicious Chinese food. You can also reach to the highest building in
the whole world, Taipei 101, by car in 30 minutes. The high quality shops and
restaurants there never disappointed your taste and need. Above all, I would like to
extend to you our warmest welcome to Taiwan. I guarantee you will experience a trip
filled with academic and cultural excitements.
