Surgery in Gran Canaria

As part of the close and constant collaboration we have at ICUA with the Gabinete de Urología y Andrología of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, I travelled to the island to help Dr. Juarez del Dago to operate a patient with a huge prostate with the GreenLEP technique (Green Laser Enucleation of the Prostate).

I am more and more convinced of the advantages of this approach for the endoscopic treatment of BPH. The GreenLight laser offers an unparalleled reliable coagulation of prostatic tissue that avoids bleeding during and after surgery. It allowed us to solve the big problem this patient had elegantly and smoothly.

Everything went very well, and Dr. Juarez told me the postoperative recovery was excellent. It is always a pleasure to travel to Gran Canaria, although the weather was a bit fresh this time.

If there is any international reader of this blog who needs laser surgery for his BPH condition, a nice plan would be to contact Dr. Juarez, travel with the family to Gran Canaria for a Holiday and have us operate him over there!
