Starting the year in Bulgaria

My first trip of 2013 has been to Sofia, to participate in another surgical session in which we performed 15 GreenLEP procedures (GreenLight Laser Enucleation of the prostate) in four days. I was happy to hear that all patients from the previous session were doing well.

Several patients had advanced BPH (Benign prostatic hyperplasia) with big prostates and bladder stones. In such cases we first pulverize the stone with Holmium laser and then we perform the GreenLight Enucleation procedure.

The new Vmax blades for the Piranha morcellator have changed our lives, morcellation time has been reduced to more than half, now procedures are much faster.

It started snowing and everything turned white... winter is tough in Bulgaria.
