PROFILE

Sung Yong Cho

# My initial training of urology residency and fellowship was at the Seoul National University Hospital (SNUH) in Korea. After the fellowship, I joined the Seoul National University Boramae Medical Center (SMG-SNU BMC) as a full-time faculty in 2011 and moved back to SNUH in 2019 as an associate professor. Now I am the head of the 'Specialized Endoluminal Endourology-Stone Center (SEES)' in this hospital which is the first kidney stone specialized center in Korea.

# I am in charge of the Units of Shock Wave Lithotripter (SWL), Flexible Ureteroscopy (f-URS), Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL), and Endoscopic Combined IntraRenal Stone surgery (ECIRS). Besides the Kidney Stone Center, I am also taking care of the enucleation surgery of benign prostate hyperplasia Unit (HoLEP, BipoLEP, etc), endoscopic treatment of ureteral stricture and upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC)

# For the past years, I am one of the members who are leading f-URS, supine and Miniaturized PCNL, ECIRS cases in Korea. As a surgeon, my goal is to serve patients better and reach the ultimate outcomes of a high 'Quality Of Life' and safety with advanced surgical techniques and extensive experiences.
