Surgeries in Montevideo

I spent this weekend in Montevideo, to help the Urologists of the British Hospital, Dr. Daniel Porto and Dr. Javier Zeballos to kick off with his Greenlight HPS 120 watt laser surgical unit. This is the first center in Uruguay to adopt this technique for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

The trip was a little bit boring as my flight from Madrid to Buenos Aires was delayed 10 hours, but once there I had some time to tour Buenos Aires. Then I took a flight to Montevideo and after resting for the night we started the surgical sessions which were successful!!!

The following day my colleages took me out and showed me the highlights of Montevideo and then I returned to Madrid via Sao Paulo. Quite a long trip...¡But it is always nice to make new friends!
