New surgical course in Modena, Italy

Again I travelled to Modena, to Hesperia Hospital, to operate with Dr. Ferrari.

This time we received the visit of three italian urologists, Dr. Timossi, Dr. Canovaro and Dr. Gianella, who witnessed the operations. I demonstrated the GreenLEP technique (GreenLight Enucleation of the Prostate) as well as the vapo-enucleation technique, as we only had patients with big prostates today.

Fortunately we could use the new Vmax blades from the Piranha morcellator, manufactured by Richard Wolf, that allows a super-fast extraction of prostatic tissue from the bladder, cutting down the surgical time!

At the end of the session I drove to Bologna Airport to travel to Sofia sleeping at Istanbul airport... a little tired, but very happy.
