Surgeries in Bilbao, Hospital de Basurto

Last thursday I took a plane early in the morning to go to Bilbao, to the Hospital de Basurto, to perform a surgical demonstration of the new GreenLight XPS 180 watt laser. We did two cases in the morning and the residents could perform most of the operations. Then Dr. Unda took me out for lunch "the vasque way". I like so much the Vasque Country ;-) Then I returned to Madrid to start my holidays!!

Training in Casablanca

This time I travelled to Casablanca to participate in the training of Professors Abdennabi Joual and Rabii. They had recently visited Madrid to see GreenLight XPS laser operations.

We did five operations that took place without any trouble. Then we went to a local hotel for a press round because this is the first GreenLight laser that is installed in Morocco. Sadly I had no time to visit Casablanca...

GreenLight XPS 180 watt laser: Anatomic PVP Technique

Here I am presenting a new technique, the "Anatomic" PVP that aims to remove the whole adenoma from the prostate by localizing anatomical landmarks that will help achieving this goal. This enhances the durability of the procedure and achieve lower PSAs postoperatively.

I hope you enjoy, comments are welcome!

Presentation of the new GreenLight XPS laser in Spain

This Friday I participated in the official presentation of the new GreenLight XPS 180 watt laser that took place at the University Hospital Fundación Alcorcón, in Madrid.

One of the talks was about how to apply the basic science to clinical practice. I used a new tool to make presentations called PREZI, that allows for online publication. Logically this is only the presentation, but not my voice explaining it... but it is certainly remarkable and that is why I publish it here (you will see it better if you click on more on the lower right and choose full screen).
