3rd World Congress on Controversies in Urology (CURY) - Athens Greece

This weekend I went to Athens with my daughters. We took the opportunity that I had to come to Athens to participate in the 3rd World Congress on Controversies in Urology (CURY), to spend some time together and enjoy some sightseeing. I had to participate in a symposium on GreenLight treatment of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), with other international experts in this field.

The meeting was very successful, with high quality presentations from all the faculty members. I had a new chance to present the new GreenLEP (GreenLight Laser Enucleation of the Prostate) in the talk on how to treat big prostates.

Then I spoke on the differences of this laser with other lasers, and I gave my opinion on which is the reference treatment, the Gold Standard treatment for BPH. For me there is no doubt that laser treatment of BPH is nowadays the Gold Standard, and that TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) and open prostatectomy have a much higher risk of complications.

This time I did have time for some tourism and we enjoyed a fantastic weather in Athens, that we were missing in Spain!
