Surgeries in Rabat, Morocco

I spent thursday and friday in Rabat, Morocco, where I had to train Prof. Karim Tazi on the use of the GreenLight laser for the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

We worked at the Clinique Souissi. It was a special pleasure to meet Prof. Tazi.

Surgeries in Reggio Emilia, Italy

This time I visited the Ospedale di Reggio Emilia where I worked with Dr. Francho Bergamaschi and with the new GreenLight XPS 180 watt laser.

It is a very modern and well equipped hospital, and Dr. Bergamaschi is very interested in laser treatment of BPH.

After the surgical session we had a meeting where I explained to the members of the urology department all the basic science behind this laser. Then I returned to Madrid, that same day, late at night.

This was published in the local press after my visit.

This monday I operated with Dr. Francisco Juarez del Dago, from the Gabinete de Urología y Andrología of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. We collaborate often and it is always a pleasure to share with him. After a wonderful sunday together in Gran Canaria, we did two complex PVPs in San Roque Clinic.

Surgical weekend in Sofia

As every month I flew to Sofia for a weekend surgical session. In this occasion we had a foreign visitor. Dr. Jan Ebbing, from the Klinik für Urologie Charite - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. He wanted to learn the GreenLEP (GreenLight enucleation of the prostate) technique, and as do a lot of these operations in two days at the Hill Clinic in Sofia, it was a good opportunity.

We were both interviewed for the Standard Newspaper, the most important diary in Bulgaria.

Experts meeting in San José, California.

In this occasion I flew to San José to join an international experts committee where we discuss how should new lasers for the treatment of BPH evolve.

This committee is composed by Dr. Benjamin Choi (USA), Mayo Clinic Professor emeritus Dr. Reza Malek (USA), Dr. Mahmood Hai (USA), Dr. Karl Kemberling (USA) and Dr. Henry Woo (Australia), who could not be in this photo. It is always fascinating to think about the future of surgery of BPH and these are very interesting meetings.
