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.
