Photodynamic diagnostic (PDD) & bipolar en bloc resection (ERBT)

Educator / speaker:

The urology department at University Hospital Bonn is one of the leading urology centers in the Rhineland and a German Cancer Society-certified bladder cancer center. Renowned urologist Professor Manuel Ritter has been the Chief Physician for urology and pediatric urology there since December 2018. Professor Ritter and his Senior Physician, Dr. Stein, have many years of experience in urological oncology and employ the latest technology in the treatment of bladder tumors, both in diagnosis and in minimally invasive surgery. Numerous procedures using fluorescence endoscopy (PDD) with Hexvix©, narrow-band imaging (NBI), en bloc resection and bipolar/monopolar TUR of the bladder mark out Professor Ritter as an unparalleled expert in this field.
