Visitors from Sweden and Italy

In this occasion we had two days of surgery to demonstrate the techniques of Greenlight anatomic vaporization and Greenlight enucleation to our important visitors from Sweden and Italy.

I demonstrated how it is possible to ensure the full removal of the adenoma by the use of the Anatomic Vaporization technique in different types of prostates. Finally I performed a GreenLight Enucleation in a massive prostate, which was very difficult and demanding, but we managed to finish the procedure successfully by performing the morcellation of the adenoma inside the prostatic capsule.

We love to receive visitors and to share our knowledge with other colleagues!!!

Trip to Bérgamo

I took an early flight to Bergamo, Italy, to spend the day with Dr. Ivano Vavassori, one of the best surgeons in Europe in the treatment of BPH with laser. I witnessed four surgical procedures that he brilliantly completed. A good opportunity to compare the differences and pros and cons of Holmium laser enucleation and GreenLight laser enucleation, and to learn from a true master of surgery.

I am always impressed to see the surgeons that by working hard and passionately achieve perfection in the execution of surgical procedures. Dr. Vavassori is on top of that a delightful human being.
