Invitation to operate in Vienna

Yesterday I received an invitation to train the prostate specialists of the Urology Department of the University Hospital in Vienna. The head of the department is Prof. Marberger, one of the "fathers" of European Urology. Dr. Djavan is also an eminent urologist well known for his contributions to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Dr. Marberger and I met recently at the International Urology Congress celebrated in Madrid. I think he was convinced by the efficacy and simplicity of Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate. Apparently they have decided to adopt this technique and I am invited to a two day workshop in which I will lecture on the basic aspects of this technique and we will perform several surgeries. I will keep you posted in this blog.
