Summit in Controversies in Urology in Madrid

In this occasion I participated in a round table on lasers in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia with my residency colleagues Dr. Francois Peinado and Dr. Manuel Fernández Arjona.

It was a pleasure to be with them. As we had to be controverted I said it is inmoral that there are still open prostatectomies for BPH being made when there are minimally invasive techniques as the endoscopic laser enucleation. There was much discussion. I think urologists must open their eyes and abandon for good open prostatectomy and start learning how to do an endoscopic enucleation.

Visitor to our operating room

Today we received the visit of Dr. Porto, from Montevideo, who came to our operating room to witness surgical procedures with us. I really loved to see his devotion for urology and learning. A big example, he stayed with us to see surgeries until very late!

It is always a pleasure to receive the visit of friends!

Reference center for AIRSEAL technology in Spain

We are very happy to incorporate a new AIRSEAL insuflation system in our operating room. From now on we will use it in all robotic and laparoscopic operations.

We are also happy as we will become reference center for this technology in Spain and we will receive the visit of all surgeons and urologists who want to see how it works.

It is basically a very sophisticated insuflator that adds enormous advantages in safety for the patient and for the surgeons.

We are very grateful to Clinica CEMTRO for their support in the adoption of this technology. We are always compromised with excellence and offering the best to our patients.

Live surgery at the "Technology and Training in Endourology" meeting in Torino, Italy

Despite I am traveling less nowadays, to be able to devote myself to my patients and due to my heavy dedication now to robotic surgery, I still participate in international meetings to demonstrate the laser techniques for the treatment of BPH.

This time I was invited to perform a live demonstration of a Green Laser Enucleation of the Prostate at the congress Technology and Training in Endourology 2016.

This operation is becoming popular in Europe after my publication in the Journal of Endourology describing the technique and how to learn it.

It was a nice day in the company of many international friends.

Visitor to our operating room

We had a surgical session and we received the visit of Dr. Kris Maes, a Belgian urologists recognized for his expertise in Robotic Surgery who works in Lisbon.

We could comment the different techniques, the scientific basis and the surgical tricks of Green laser surgery

As always, Green laser enucleation results very surprising to those who see it, we had a great time together and it is always a pleasure to share with colleagues!

Visitors to my operating room

As every month, we receive visitors to witness operations with the GreenLight laser. In these sessions I demonstrate to my colleagues from other hospitals the different techniques I developed for Green Laser prostatectomy, anatomic vaporization and En bloc GreenLEP.

I recommend the stepwise strategy to learn that I published in the World Journal of Urology )free access) It is also paramount to use the proper instruments, specifically designed to perform mechanical enucleation.
