South Africa Roadshow - Johannesburg

After the first lecture in Pretoria, we travelled by car to Johannesburg, where we had to meet a very prestigious urologist interested in this technique and later on that evening we had a new lecture scheduled where all the urologists from Johannesburg were invited.
The lecture was a success, when urologists used to do TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) see the data, the results and the videos of PVP, they realise how superior PVP is. Seeing that one can get the same endoscopic result without the risk of bleeding, impotence and incontinence, they are convinced that this is the way to go. We had a lively discussion, and after this intense meeting, it looks like several hospitals in Johannesburg will be offering this technique to their patients very soon.
