"I am convinced that innovation is what drives our lives forward. The better is the enemy of the good. In line with this maxim, we have turned the field of ureterorenoscopy upside down once again and designed a completely new kind of endoscope in collaboration with Richard Wolf. This product is now available for you to use. I am looking forward to welcoming you to the eMasterclass Workshop live from Munich. Spend a day with us in the endo operating room and gain valuable insights into the capabilities of the new RIWO D-URS. Save the date now: October 13, 2022, 2nd eMasterclass Workshop, Stone Therapy 2022."
