Visitors from the Canary Islands

This Friday I received in Madrid the visit of Dr. Juarez and his wife, who came from the Canary Islands to see the new Greenlight HPS in action. The surgical session was specially interesting because we operated two patients, one of them was a 50 gram prostate, very straight forward. The second case was a 220 gram prostate that needed 1.100.000 joules and a suprapubic trocar to enhance irrigation. We managed to do a good job in 2 hours and 45 minutes... the patient went home the next day, happy. Dr. Juarez is going to start using this HPS laser in the Canary Islands next week. I plan to jump there to give him a hand with the first cases. I did not take photographs, but I will in the Canary Islands...
