Pasquale Casale, MD, Chief, Pediatric Urology at New York-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital was 2018 Visiting Professor for UCSF Pediatric Urology this February.
“He graciously shared his expertise in robotic and minimal invasive surgery, the treatment of pediatric stone disease and new technologies with our team,” said UCSF chief of pediatric urology, Laurence Baskin, MD.
Opening day started with an overall update on pediatric robotics from Dr. Casale followed by 10-minute presentations by residents and fellows. After lunch, Dr. Casale presented, “Leave No Sone Unturned – A Talk on Peds Stone Disease” followed again by 10-minute presentations by residents. The talks concluded with Dr. Baskin, “Answers to Unknows” and prize presentations. Dr. Baskin then hosted a journal club and dinner.
Day two continued the education program with presentations from researchers, medical students, fellows and faculty.
The fast-paced two-day event was informative and lively. “There were many spirited discussions enjoyed by faculty, fellows and residents” said Dr. Baskin. “We are grateful for Dr. Casale’s time and willingness to share his great breadth of knowledge to advance our field.”
