Training at the Hospital de Torrejón, in Madrid

Today I drove to the brand new Hospital de Torrejón to help my friends urologists at the hospital to perform their first cases of HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate). It is a very difficult to learn technique for the surgeon, and I helped them through the operations. My nurse Vanesa came with me to instruct the local nurses in the subtleties of the instrumentation of this technique.

We did two cases that went very well. Dr. Luis Llanes is the head of the department of Urology at this hospital and my colleage as well at Clinica CEMTRO. I liked the Hospital very much and I enjoyed being with my friends sharing my passion for laser surgery of the prostate!
