Major congress advances incontinence and pelvic floor research in Toronto




The International Continence Society (ICS) and the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) last week held a joint annual meeting in Toronto recently, with the aim of “advancing incontinence and pelvic floor research and treatment”, according to congress co-chair Harold Dutz.

These two major international societies hold this joint event every five years, and chose the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) as their venue for 2010.

Approximately 3,500 professionals in the fields of urology, gynecology, uro-gynecology, physiotherapy, nursing, neurology and pediatric urology, and pharmacology gathered to discuss the latest developments in continence medicine, the most recent research results and discoveries. These professionals – specialists in incontinence, pelvic floor disorders and related fields – included physicians, surgeons, nurses, physicists, physiotherapists, physiologists, bio-engineers and scientists.

"Our local economy has benefited from over $9.4 million in delegate spending, and we invited our international guests to take full advantage of all that our thriving, multicultural location has to offer," said Barry Smith, president and chief executive of the MTCC. 

"Toronto has a rare openness, energy and style," said congress co-chair Sender Herschorn, Congress Co-Chair. "It's a city that celebrates the power of the collective, the coming together of great minds and sharing ideas. What better place to host a joint meeting between two highly influential societies."
