Interview on Spanish TV on HIFU + Greenlight

This is a recent interview in the Spanish National TV most popular health program "Saber Vivir". They asked me about the characteristics of the HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) + Greenlight HPS laser combination to treat prostate cancer. This interview took place during a press round we made with the company of Dr. Andreas Blana, from the University of Regensburg in Germany, who came to Madrid to help us with some of our cases.

This minimally invasive prostate cancer treatment is gaining popularity in Europe due to its efficacy and low risk. Patients can go home in less than 24 hours and they go back to their normal life very fast. It has a low risk of incontinence and the rate of potency postoperatively is 50%. Very good for a prostate cancer treatment.
