Invitation to operate in Chile 2

Today we had the fist surgical session, with Dr. Fernando Coz, head of the department of Urology of the Military Hospital in Santiago de Chile. We have operated three patients with relatively small prostates (40-55 grams), so the session was uneventful. It was a very fruitful session, all the attendants learned the physical bases of laser-tissue interaction and we have reviewed all the tips and tricks that make PVP (Photoselective Vaporization of the prostate) a safe and efficient operation. Tomorrow we will perform three more surgeries and then I will dictate the conference I announced in the previous post of this blog.
