In this edition of ‘Face to Face’, I talk with Laurence Klotz, MD, FRCSC, Professor, Department of Surgery, at the University of Toronto, Canada. He is also the Chief of Urology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Women’s College Hospital, also in Toronto. Dr Klotz obtained his medical degree and completed his residency at the University of Toronto and its Gallie Programme in Surgery. Subsequently, he completed a special fellowship in uro-oncology and tumour biology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, USA. A prolific author and editor, Dr Klotz is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Urology and now serves as Editor of the Canadian Urologic Association Journal. In addition to being a busy lecturer worldwide on prostate cancer and active surveillance, he has also been a tireless fundraiser and researcher for prostate cancer, having founded the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation and chairing the Canadian Urology Research Consortium. I caught up with him during the recent AUA meeting in Washington, DC.
