Surgeries in Gran Canaria

Once again I flew to Gran Canaria to operate with Dr. Juarez. We did two procedures in two BPH patients, with the new Greenlight HPS laser, and everything went smoothly. I love to travel to Gran Canaria. The weather was not too good, but it is always a pleasure.

Surgical day in Santiago de Compostela

Yesterday I arrived at Santiago de Compostela, with a terrible flu. I had been invited to perform a live surgical procedure at the Hospital Universitario de Santiago de Compostela, where Dr. Marqués Queimadelos organises each year the Update in Urological Surgery Meeting, sponsored by the SINUG and the Sociedad Gallega de Urología.

The patient had been submitted to a TURP (Transurethral resection of the prostate) and had a very irregular prostatic urethra. Visibility was not perfect, but he got better and better and at the end the result was excellent.

Then in the afternoon, I did a presentation on Greenlight laser prostatectomy and then we went to have dinner to the famous "Hostal" in front of the Cathedral. It was raining and the view of the cathedral was breathtaking....
