PCNL Course: 23 January – 31 January 2015

The Stonebuster Initiative

This is an intensive hands-on training course held in Sri Lanka for doctors and surgeons involved in the field of kidney stones.  The itinerary for the UK based participants attending this course is shown below.  They will:

  • Be trained in percutaneous stone surgery
  • Receive the equivalent of six months experience in just a few days
  • Train with local Sri Lankan doctors and surgeons at the same time
  • Bring benefit to your UK patients from the experience you will gain
  • Establish connections with other doctors and surgeons, which will stand you in good stead throughout your professional life.

Why Sri Lanka?

  • The course cost is considerably less expensive than one held in the UK
  • There is too little equipment and too many patients
  • Stone disease is rampant, causing pain and interference with kidney function
  • The variety of types of stones experienced by participants increases their skills
  • Children as well as adults await operations

Courses

  •  This course is of 8 days duration, with 5 days spent in operating theatres
  • The current all-inclusive cost is in the region of £2,500
  • Medi Tech Trust will provide a grant to a maximum of 20% of the total cost
  • Training is concentrated on percutaneous stone surgery
  • Each UK participant raises funds, through grants, donations and initiatives in their own locality, towards the cost of their airfare, accommodation and expenses
