National Congress in Lima, Perú

Finally, to finish working prior to my summer holidays, I went to Lima, Perú. I had been invited to the National Congress of the Peruvian Urological Society. I had to talk about lasers and BPH and also about cryosurgery and HIFU for the treatment of prostate cancer.

During the weekend I took the opportunity to visit the city of Lima and the ruins of Pachacamac. I enjoyed thoroughly.

There I met my Peruvian friends, Dr. Elvis Sueldo, César Quincot and Jorge Saldaña. On Monday they had arranged four operations. I could demonstrate different technical variants with the GreenLight HPS laser, including the anatomic PVP and the principle of the GreenLEP technique.

We had time to perform a presentation where I commented all the aspects of basic science and surgical technique.

As always it was a great pleasure to be with them and we had a great time. They later told me that patients fared very well. I returned to Madrid a little tired, but wanting to start my holidays after a very tough year, with lots of work and travelling.
