Mentoring in South Africa

Again I went to Southafrica, this time to mentor two teams in Johannesburg. They are the first surgeons to offer the Greenlight PVP procedure in Africa. We went to Linkinsfield Park Hospital in Johannesburg to operate three patients.

I had the enormous honour of operating the first patient to be subjected to a PVP in the African continent... I shared this honour with Dr. Kevin Fisher, who finished the operation. After this first case, I helped Dr. Fisher to perform two operations that were very successful.

We will have dinner together tonight and tomorrow we will conduct a similar session in another hospital. Today the session was successful and everyone who saw the technique, anaesthetists, nurses, other surgeons, were very impressed by this technique.
