This time I went to Sofia to give a training course to 8 French Urologists, who came to visit our surgical room and participate in two days of intensive surgery.

The session went very well and I could show them the easy and difficult cases, with small and bigger prostates. A very interesting session.

In Paris to lecture at the IV Meeting of French-Belgium GreenLight laser users

Today I flew to Paris to give the opening lecture of the IV Congress of French-Belgium GreenLight laser users.

There was a welcoming cocktail and there I could see many friends as Dr. Vincent Misrai, who is now the leader in France in GreenLight laser enucleation.

I was honored to give the congress' opening lecture during the welcome dinner.

Then I went to sleep early as the following day I had to depart very early to Sofia, for another course.

European Association of Urology Annual Congress in Madrid

This year we hosted the EAU congress in Madrid.

I was invited to participate in two hands-on courses with the GreenLight laser simulator and I had to perform a live surgical procedure that had to be transmitted to the audience in the congress.

This was the scheduled live surgical session.

Unfortunately, the program run late and the operation could not be transmitted live. Well after the session ended, I stayed at Hospital Universitario Clínico San Carlos to perform the operation that went very well.

Surgeries in the General University Hospital in Elche, Spain

This time I flew to Alicante to participate the following day in a surgical training session at the General University Hospital of Elche.

I firs did a presentation of the physics of lasers and techniques to the department staff and then we went to the operating room to perform three operations.

Again I could see how the Hospital Urologists valued positively the use of GreenLight with the new techniques I described.

Nice photo isn't it? Then I returned to Madrid in the high speed train.

Live surgery at the First Italian Experts Meeting on GreenLight laser for BPH

This time I travelled to Reggio Emilia in Italy to participate in the first Italian Expert Meeting on GreenLight Laser.

I was invited to perform an operation with the En Bloc enucleation technique that was broadcasted to the main auditorium at the Hospital in Reggio Emilia.

The operation went very well and after the operation we weighted 110 grams of tissue obtained during the operation. The technique was very well received. During the last two years I have travelled to Italy to train and help many urologists throughout the country, more than 20 times. Many of the attendees are already good friends.

After the surgical session we had very interesting debate sessions. Finally I returned to Madrid that same day.
