Habilitation/ Professorial dissertation
The transobturator retroluminal repositioning sling in the treatment of male postsurgical incontinence
Being born in South Africa I completed my basic medical training at Tygerberg hospital at Stellenbosch University. After housemanship in the departments of ophthalmology, orthopaedics, internal medicine, paediatrics and anaesthesiology in Windhoek, Namibia, I continued my specialist training at the departments of surgery, orthopaedics and urology at the Tygerberg hospital in the Western Cape near Cape Town. Since 1986 when I performed my first operation- a caesarian section-, I gathered extensive experience in operative urology including transplant urology, paediatric urology, prosthetic surgery, endourology, trauma urology and reconstructive urology. After more than 15,000 surgical procedures in 34 different countries around the globe, I am very privileged to have been closely involved in the lives of many patients.
Teachers and professors that significantly influenced my medical career as a surgeon include Don F. Du Toit, Gustav Witters- Vansteenkiste, Martinus L.S. de Kock, Chris F. Heyns, Abrie Schmidt, Rudolf Hohenfellner, Margit Fisch, Mohamed Ghoneim, Hassan Abol- Enein, Marcus Riccabona, Alberto Peña, Klaus Jeschke, Helmut Madersbacher, Georg Bartsch, Ferdinand Frauscher, Don Skinner, John Stein, Jens Rassweiler, George Webster, Gerald Jordan, Ed McGuire to name just a few.
My specialist urologist career started in 1996 and took me to positions at the universities of Stellenbosch (South Africa), Leicester (United Kingdom) and Innsbruck (Austria). In Innsbruck, I completed my habilitation: “The Transobturator Retroluminal Repositioning Sling in the Treatment of Male Postsurgical Urinary Incontinence: The Augmentation of Residual Urinary Sphincter Function by Distal Urethral Sphincter Support”.
After being 20 years at the university hospital in Innsbruck, my full time practice today includes reconstructive urology including neurourology, female and paediatric urology, urethral, incontinence, prosthetic and post-irradiation surgery. Medicine and surgery has changed dramatically during my lifetime, remembering the first heart transplant by Christiaan Barnard in Cape Town in 1967 when I was five years old. One of the big challenges today has crystallized to be the training of the surgeons of tomorrow.
It is an honour to be an invited speaker, and I really hope to contribute to the academic programme. Nothing would make me happier to be able pass some enthusiasm and inspiration to the next generation.

I graduated in Semmelweis University of Medicine in Budapest in 1982. Since 1991 I work at the Department of Urology of Hôpital Henri Mondor –Université Paris Est Créteil. My main field of interest is surgery of urinary stone disease. It underwent tremendous evolution. Our department is well equipped and we perform virtually all presently available stone surgery techniques: extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, rigid and flexible ureteroscopy, standard, mini, ultramini and micropercutaneous nephrolithotomy. For many years, we do our percutaneous surgeries in the supine position which allows endoscopic combined intrarenal surgery. I teach these techniques at national and international levels in my department and also in several European countries and North Africa within the frame of workshops and masterclasses.
I am member of Association Française d’Urologie, European Association of Urology, Endourology Society, ESUT, EULIS, honorary member of Hungarian Society of Urology.
