Puigvert Foundation

This thursday I took a plane to Barcelona to help the urologists from the prestigious Puigvert Foundation to perform their first cases of Greenlight Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate. This Puigvert Foundation is one of the most prestigious urological centres in europe, and they have decided to embrace Greenlight PV.
The surgical session was uneventful and I really enjoyed it. We operated three patients with relatively small prostates. One of them was a high risk patient. I then found out that the immediate postoperative recovery was very good, and that all patients were sent home without a catheter. All urologists that see this procedure live for the first time are amazed by the great advantage of operating patients with BPH without blood loss and by the extraordinary endoscopic result. I then went to the airport and took a flight to Paris, to participate at the Europan Urological Association annual congress.
