Surgeries in Buenos Aires, Argentina

This weekend I went to Buenos Aires, where I was invited by my friends Edgardo Becher, Marcelo Borghi and Victor Chernobilsky, from the prestigious Centro de Urología de Buenos Aires.

The Centro de Urología is an ambulatory surgical center where they have already operated more than one thousand patients with the GreenLight Laser. The objective of my visit was to help them start with the GreenLEP (GreenLight Enucleation of the Prostate) technique, so that they can offer this to their patients, specially those with bigger prostates.

It is a great pleasure to work with expert surgeons, they had no problems to grasp the technique, we only had to polish small but important details to do this kind of operation, that is technically more demanding than simple vaporization.

I had a great time with them, they are wonderful urologists and remarkable human beings, now even more friends.
