Surgeries in Mallorca: Hospital Son Dureta

This friday I flew to Mallorca, to demonstrate the GreenLight HPS laser in action. I went to the Hospital Son Dureta, the biggest in the Island.

They had prepared two patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and they wanted to see the technique because they are considering acquiring a laser for their hospital. After the publication of Dr. Benejam of his experience in major ambulatory surgery in Manacor, proving that GreenLight HPS treatment of BPH is cheaper than traditional surgical treatment, public hospitals in Spain are considering this treatment more seriously.

It was a fantastic session because both cases did very well. I showed them the new technique anatomic laser prostatectomy, where the surgical capsule is clearly localized, to ensure a complete vaporization of the adenomatous tissue.

It was a specially nice session because my friend, Dr. Fernando García Montes, an international expert in reconstructive pelvic surgery, works there. He and I shared a year working at the Institute of Urology in London, where we forged a true friendship. It is so good to have FRIENDS.
