Masterclass with Dr. Gaston in Madrid

This saturday we received a visit from Dr. Richard Gaston, from Bordeaux. He came to visit as part of an ongoing collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Urological Surgery, from Madrid. We did three radical prostatectomies in one day, and then Dr. Gaston returned to Bordeaux at 7 pm. He is considered one of the best laparoscopists in the world, invented the technique of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, and has performed more than 2000 procedures.
