Our Autumn/Winter webinar series looks at the challenges presented by patients with urolithiasis who fall are at the extemes of age – children and older people and stone disease in patients with a high body mass index.
With an ageing population, an epidemic of metabolic syndrome, stone disease in the elderly and obese is increasingly common. Improvements in instrumentation,  imaging modalities, and multidisciplinary care mean that endourologists are increasingly being asked to collaborate with their paediatric colleagues in the care of children with urolithiasis. 
This webinar series hopes to cover the challenges posed to the endourologist by these extremes. We hope you can join us !
