Farewell to our Fellows

After six months with us, we are departing from our friends Dr. Giussepe Saitta, from Italy and Dr. Ernesto Aguayo, from Mexico, with great sorrow.

They have been excellent company and very helpful during their stay in Madrid, and witnessed a lot of endoscopic and robotic surgery throughout these months. 

We will miss them!

World Congress of Endourology in Paris

This time I fleew to Paris to participate in the World Congress of Endourology

My role was to give a lecture on GreenLEP (GreenLight Enucleation of the prostate) in a simposium of the congress.

I was also invited to participate in a panel on Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia but I could not stay and a french colleague used my presentation on my absence.

I love to see how the technique I described of Green Laser Enucleation of the Prostate is gaining popularity in Europe and has more and more presence in high level congresses.

New surgical session in Piaseczno, Poland

Again I flew to Warsow in Poland, to operate in the Hospital in Piaseczno with my Polish colleagues.

It was an intense surgical session where we performed 12 HoLEPs (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate).

It was good to know that all patients fared well and were able to go home the next morning.

International course on advances techniques with the GreenLight laser in Madrid

This time we receive the visit of urologists from different European Countries, Holland, Germany, UK, Lebanon, Denmark and others to participate in the advanced surgical techniques with GreenLight laser at ICUA - Clínica CEMTRO.

This time we started in the main auditorium. Dr. Giusseppe Saita and Dr. Ernesto Aguayo, our fellows helped us greatly with the moderation of the live transmission from the operating room

The course took place over two days where we had first a live surgical sesion, where Dr. Misrai and myself showed the anatomic vaporization technique and the en bloc GreenLEP technique.

After a nice course dinner at Restaurant Filandon, near the Clinic, we started the second day, where we discussed different aspects of BPH surgery with the GreenLight laser, with lectures from Dr. Misrai, Dr. Giovanni Ferrari and myself.

As always, a great occasion to interact with other colleagues and to learn all together!

New Publication in the Gold Journal (UROLOGY)

This video-article published in the journal UROLOGY is the result of the hard work of Dr. Enrique Rijo, who edits fantastic and very formative videos, with the help of Dr. Aho and Misrai and my contirbutions. An excellent source of information for those who want to learn the techniques of anatomic enucleation of the prostate that are followed by the step of morcellation, or aspiration of prostatic tissue to be able to send it for histological analysis.
