Dr. Mani Menon Lifetime Achievement Symposium
A Message from our Course Director
This two-day academic course is the inaugural Dr. Mani Menon symposium. We have named this symposium in his name to honor his lifetime achievement in innovation and pursuit of academic excellence. We plan to continue this symposium in the future to promote academic excellence in Urology.
We acknowledge Dr. Menon’s legacy of innovation and his celebrated contributions in Urology throughout his career. Many of our practices have been influenced by his pioneering efforts and we are part of his legacy.
We sincerely hope you can join us in honoring Dr. Menon and several other pioneers in our field as they share lessons learned from the past for the future. It is sure to be an instructive and historic event.
