Surgical weekend in Sofia, Bulgaria

Again I flew to Sofia to visit Hill Clinic to operate as I have been doing every month for the last four years. This time we received the visit of Dr. D'Arrigo, from the Ospedale Cannizzaro di Catania, Italy, who came to witness the Green Laser Prostatic Enucleation procedures we carry out here.

It was a very intense session with 16 operations of Green Laser enucleation of the prostate. Everything went very well and every day I am more convinced that this is an impressive procedure. All the urologists in the world should learn it and show it to their patients!

New surgical session with Dr. Gaston at Clínica CEMTRO

Again we received the visit of Dr. Gastón at Clinica CEMTRO. He came with us to perform laparoscopic procedures, as he has been doing for the last 6 years. This time he did not limit himself to perform oncologic procedures, as radical cystectomies or prostatectomies, but he also performed a laparoscopic colposacropexy, a procedure designed for the treatment of pelvic prolapse in women.

His knowledge of pelvic anatomy is incredible. Again we enjoyed having him with us in Madrid. In the photo with Dr. Estefanía Romero, from the ICUA team, performing this operation.

Visitors to Clinica CEMTRO

This time we had two days of surgeries at Clinica CEMTRO with 4 patients programmed for surgery on tuesday and 3 on wednesday. We received the visit of Stefanie Thiele, Michael Gebauer and Luz Velázquez from AMS (American Medical Systems). This company manufactures the GreenLight laser we normally use.

They came to witness the Green Laser Enucleation of the Prostate Technique for the treatment of BPH that we performed throughout the two days.

On wednesday we also received the visit of Dr. José Ramón Pérez Carral, from the Fundación Hospital Alcorcón and Dr. Leticia López Martín, from the Fundación Jiménez Díaz, who also came interested to see this technique.

It was an intense session, with many surgeries, that went very well.

Green Laser Enucleation of the Prostate in Gran Canaria

Again I travelled to Gran Canaria to help Dr. Juarez with a patient who had a big prostate gland due to BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia). We performed a Green Laser Enucleation of the prostate and everything went very well.

Dr. Juarez is the organizer of the XX Canarian Meeting on Andrology and Sexual Medicine and he invited me to participate speaking on the impact of surgical treatment of BPH for the sexual function of the male.
