  2. 2. Dear SCS colleagues, I am delighted to invite you and your families to the 2013 Annual South Central Section meeting. For the first time in our long history, we will head north to the great city of Chicago for the festivities. Mark down the dates September 18 – 21, 2013, now to start the planning process. If you were ever planning to attend a SCS meeting, make it this year… you won’t be disappointed! This year’s meeting promises to be memorable in many ways. The academic program is robust, featuring selected presentations covering all sectors of our specialty. Guest professors will include Larry Klotz, MD; Catherine deVries, MD; and Ajay Nehra, MD. Special topics include the role of intravesical botulinum injection in a general urology practice, a point-counterpoint debate on graft versus plication for Peyronie’s disease deformities and an update on the current status of PSA testing. Special lectures on international volunteerism in urology and other programs for residents including a Residents Quiz Bowl are planned to round out the academics. The Presidential Guest Lecturer will be John H. Armstrong, MD, FACS, Surgeon General of Florida, whose lecture, “Health Care Reform: If You Are Not at the Table, You Are On the Menu,” will give us an insider’s view of the unique challenges facing surgeons amid imminent national health care changes. The timing of this meeting should provide refreshing early autumn weather to wipe away any lingering remnants of your hot summer. Chicago provides a number of strategic advantages such as direct inexpensive flights, shopping and restaurants galore and countless activities for all members of the family. Our meeting will take place at the historic Palmer House Hilton, a Chicago classic situated close to everything right on Michigan Avenue. This hotel is a blend of 1880’s Victorian charm with modern amenities from its recent multimillion-dollar renovation. Our annual banquet will be in the famous Empire Room, home to speeches from five US Presidents and regular performances by luminaries such as Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Billy Holiday. A full complement of spousal activities are planned, highlighted by the amazing Chicago River Architectural Tour (which should be on everyone’s bucket list), a tour of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Nordstrom fashion show. Theme night will offer a genuine Chicago blues experience, and a performance by a legendary Chicago “iO Improv” comedy group is planned to spice up the annual banquet, so don’t leave early! In short, this meeting will have it all. Please join us for a world-class urology seminar in a world-class venue! Sincerely, Allen F. Morey, MD 2012 – 2013 SCS President OFFICERS President Allen F.

A b o ut C hica g o, I L Located on the shores of Lake Michigan in the heart of the Midwest, Chicago is home to the blues, several sports teams, an internationally acclaimed symphony orchestra, spectacular live theater, celebrated architecture and thousands of restaurants, museums and shops.
  9. 9. Other attractions not to miss include Buckingham Fountain at Grant Park, the Hancock Observatory and the Skydeck at Willis Tower, formerly the Sears Tower. Skydeck Chicago’s “the Ledge,” which opened to the public last year, is a glass box that extends out 4.3 feet from the skyscraper’s Skydeck on the 103rd floor, providing an exhilarating and unparalleled view of the city. Shopping A visit to Chicago would be incomplete without a shopping spree. Shopping in Chicago began on State Street, with the opening of the original Marshall Field’s department store in 1852. Today, shoppers at Macy’s (the old Marshall Field’s flagship store) will find an outstanding selection of men’s and women’s apparel, an extensive house ware department, several fine restaurants, a food court and a visitors’ center. State Street is also home to another famous Chicago department store, Carson Pirie Scott, where customers are drawn into the entrance of the store by the ornate ironwork designed by Chicago architect Louis Sullivan in 1899. A shopping spree must include a visit to the famed “Magnificent Mile,” which runs along Michigan Avenue from Oak Street to the Chicago River. Amidst department store giants such as Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s, are hundreds of specialty shops and boutiques offering goods from around the world. Oak Street, just west of Michigan Avenue, is a boutique shopper’s dream. An abundance of shopping can also be found at The Shops at North Bridge, Water Tower Place, the 900 North Michigan Avenue Shops, Chicago Place Shopping Center, Navy Pier, dozens of Chicago neighborhoods and The Shops at the Mart located at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. Architecture Visitors from around the world come to Chicago, the birthplace of the modern building, to admire its architectural marvels. From historic landmark buildings to contemporary technological masterpieces, Chicago is built of the unique and innovative designs that have shaped American architecture. The city is a living museum of architecture, thanks to the work of such greats as Daniel Burnham, Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Helmut Jahn and hundreds of others. Chicago is home to the world’s first skyscraper, designed by William Le Baron Jenney in 1885. Although the Home Insurance Building no longer stands, today Chicago is also home to three of the world’s 10 tallest buildings, including the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower), which opened in 1974. Other city landmark buildings include the Chicago Cultural Center – completed in 1897 in the Beaux Arts style, Adler and Sullivan’s 1889 Auditorium Building, and the Art Deco-era Chicago Board of Trade Building, designed by Holabird and Root in 1929. To learn more about Chicago’s acclaimed architecture, the Chicago Architecture Foundation offers more than 50 walking or bus tours, conducted by knowledgeable guides. Architectural boat cruises on the Chicago River, as well as self-guided, taped walking tours, are also available.

  15. 15. Needs The President-elect of the SCSAUA (Charles A. McWilliams, MD), consulted with SCSAUA Executive Committee members, including the current SCSAUA President, Dr. Allen F. Morey; SCSAUA Past President, Dr. Randall B. Meacham; SCSAUA Secretary, Dr. Jeffrey M. Holzbeierlein; SCSAUA Treasurer, Dr. Timothy D. Langford; and Dr. Elspeth McDougall, Chair, Office of Education of the AUA, regarding the needs we are attempting to fulfill through our annual scientific program. It was agreed by the above committee members, Section Officers and Director of the Office of Education of the AUA that there continues to be significant educational needs for our annual meeting and scientific program. Urologic abnormalities can present with a myriad of clinical symptoms and signs. Accurate differential diagnosis and disease management, which meets current standards of care, requires ongoing review of the presentations of various urologic abnormalities as well as the appropriate use of safe and cost-effective imaging modalities and various pharmacologic, minimally invasive, and operative management options. In addition, advancements in medical science and progress in management of various urologic diseases require basic and clinical research. Presentation and discussion of such peer reviewed and Abstract Reviewer-selected summaries and results of in- vestigations provide “cutting edge” updates for practicing clinicians and essential feedback to researchers on the practical applications and translation of their investiga- tions to clinical practice. There is a need to inform and educate urologic surgeons of the growing need for the surgical and therapeutic management of American veterans returning from the war zone with urologic injuries in- curred during 21st century warfare. TheAUAand others believe this group of veterans is being underserved. A broader understanding of the need and therapeutic options is important to the urologic community as it treats these veterans. Quality care is of utmost importance to the urologic community. The radical changes occurring in the US health care delivery system are threatening physi- cian’s ability to provide quality care. Physicians need to know about these changes and better understand how to improve the delivery of health care in America. The treating physician often is faced with the detailed implementation of health care one patient at a time. Without an understanding of the basis and big picture of the health care needs in America, its implementa- tion can be even more complex and difficult for the practitioner who works on the front lines of health care delivery. The urologist perspective will improve with a broader and deeper understanding of the system as a whole. The physician shortage predicted by most authorities is thought to be due to the rapid growth of patients over 65 andthoseadded tothehealthcarerollsas a resultof the Affordable Care Act. Medical educators predict a 36% increase in the baby boomer population reaching 65 and an additional 32 million Americans under 65 who will be the newly insured under the Affordable Care Act. This leads to a physician shortage of 62,900 by 2015 and 91,500 just 5 years later in 2020. Physicians need to be awareoftheseneeds.Subspecialistsneedtobeawareof the need to grow the residency slots and further develop the residency programs. Educating the residents and urologists will help meet this growing need inAmerica. Educational Objectives: • Describe the science behind Onabotulinumtoxina’s effectiveness, the appropriate selection of patients, the therapeutic outcomes expected and the safety of its use. • Recognize active surveillance for prostate cancer as a new and evolving treatment option with selection criteria and treatment plans that are still in formulation. • Identify clinical presentation and treatment options of various urologic abnormalities. • Describe the various minimally invasive treatments for urologic diseases and their risk/benefits. • Apply Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) in urologic practice specifically incorporatingAUAguidelines into daily practice. • Describe optimal treatment strategies for prostate cancer patients with early stage, intermediate stage and late stage disease states. • Integrate updated knowledge onAUAguidelines. • Analyze data pertaining to various pharmacologic and surgical treatments for voiding dysfunction and urinary incontinence. • Identify results of various laparoscopic and robotic approaches and techniques for benign and malignant urologic diseases. • Describe common pediatric urologic diseases and treatment updates. • Review surgical techniques in video format to gain a greater understanding of these techniques as well as improve the detailed application of advanced surgical management of urologic diseases. • Identify socioeconomic factors affecting urologic training and clinical practice. • Enumerate the current controversies pertaining to prostate cancer screening and the use of serum markers (PSA). • Identify basic laparoscopic applications and results in adult and pediatric patients. • Integrate the latest diagnostic/treatment options for various renal anomalies. • Describe the current surgical treatment options for correction of Peyronie’s disease. • Review new information guiding the challenge of the early detection of prostate cancer. • Identify the needs and opportunities to serve which will further develop urologic physician volunteers to help those in need around the globe. • Evaluate the advancements in surgical techniques for renal cancer surgery to include robotic, laparoscopic and percutaneous.
