Webinar: Renal Cell Carcinoma: Surgical & Medical Management of High-Risk Renal Cell Carcinoma: New Paradigms for Treatment (2020)

September 2, 2020

Course Director:  Benjamin R. Lee, MD

Treatment of renal cell carcinoma has changed with expanding indications for Robotic Partial nephrectomy and inclusion of new FDA approved treatments for advanced RCC. This course will focus on didactic case discussions using video tape analysis of surgical treatment, setup and successful completion of Robotic Partial nephrectomy, complication management and how to optimize outcomes. Urologists are now faced with treatment of advanced RCC with a host of options, from tyrosine kinase inhibitors to checkpoint inhibitors. There will be discussion focus on how to monitor, and algorithms for when to switch treatment.
