Welcome to the USTRS

The Urologic Society for Transplantation and Renal Surgery (USTRS) is the premier society for Urologists involved with Transplantation and Renal Surgery worldwide. The Society has been established to provide an academic forum for members of the Association sharing an interest in renal transplantation, kidney surgery, end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and vascular surgery. The primary purpose of the Society is to enhance the quality of physician training, research, and patient care in this subspecialty of urology.  The Society was founded in 1975 by Dr. Stuart Flechner and the late Dr. Andrew Novick as the Urologic Society for Transplantation and Vascular Surgery.
