Dr Gaston performs laparoscopic 3D operations in Madrid

As every month, Dr. Richard Gastón visited us from Bordeaux, and came to Clínica CEMTRO to operate patients with localised prostate cancer with us. This time we performed several laparoscopic radical prostatectomies using the new laparoscopic videolaparoscope from Karl Storz, a system that provides high definition (HD) and three dimensional view (3D) inside the patient's abdomen.

This was the first time this system was used in a private center in Madrid. It uses a special laparoscopic camera that allows the surgeons, through the use of special 3D glasses, to have a vision in three dimensions (3D) and High Definition (HD) of the interior of the abdomen of the patient. It is an important development because it allows to be more precise with the movements and facilitates enormously the complex laparoscopic manouvers, as intracorporeal suturing.

The operations went really well, and we were all convinced that this visualization system in 3D and HD facilitates laparoscopic surgery enormously and it is a big advantage in our daily work and logically will result in faster and safer operations for patients.
